Bucknell’s Douglas Sturm dies
Lewisburg – Friends and colleagues around Lewisburg are remembering Douglas Sturm, 85, who died Sunday, as a compassionate, steadfast champion for social justice and a mentor who loved peace and equality, wanted them to flourish and inspired others to make a difference. See the full story on the “Blog” page.
A Doug Sturm memorial will be held on July 12th at 4PM in the Chapel at Bucknell University. Parking may be very tight given the Bucknell wrestling and swimming tournaments, so plan ahead. An informal gathering for whoever wants to at the Bull Run Tap Room around 6PM.
