At 8:11 on a Thursday morning ( May 25th ) the skies were clear, and temperatures were in the high 50s to early 60s - the roads were listed as "Dry Pavement" - Yet from all the conditions I just mentioned, a man lost his life in the most unheard of way.

Special thanks to Dr. Allen Burgad, dean of the school of education, Dr. Al Olson, assessment coordinator and professor of education, and the many faculty, staff, and external participants who participated in the process.
