A solemn Texas A&M tradition continues Tuesday night with observance of Silver Taps in front of the Academic Building on campus.
The following will be remembered: Whitley DeKoch Lowry, a sophomore agricultural leadership and development major from Kingsville who died April 4; Kyle Ross Rosebrock, a senior computer science major from Buda who died April 12; Mary Elizabeth Farmer, a graduate student in psychology from College Station who died May 15; Spencer Bonham Knecht, a junior geology major from Spring who died June 18; Cassandra Jeannine Scott, a veterinary medicine graduate student from Sherman who died July 27; and Olanrewaju (Lanre) Olusola Sanu, a senior chemical engineering major from Houston who died Aug. 2.
Their names are on a list posted at the flagpole in the Academic Plaza. In their honor, the campus will be darkened at 10:20 p.m. At 10:30, an honor guard from the Ross Volunteer Company will march to the plaza, where its members will present a 21-rifle salute.
Buglers from the Aggie Band, unseen in the darkness, will play a special arrangement of Taps. The tolling of Albritton Tower bells will signal the end of the ceremony.
