Oklahoma State President Burns Hargis said the university is mourning the loss of all those who died in Saturday's Homecoming Parade tragedy, including three members of the "OSU family."
Those members are Dr. Marvin Stone, an Emeritus profession in the Department of Biosystems & Agricultural Engineering, his wife Bonnie Stone, who worked for OSU for more than 33 years, and student-employee Nicolette Strauch, whose 2-year-old son Nash Lucas was killed.
“We extend our heartfelt sympathies to the families and friends of these wonderful individuals,” said OSU President Burns Hargis.
“Marvin and Bonnie Stone were dedicated OSU employees who will be missed by their many OSU friends. Nicolette Strauch is an OSU student-employee devastated by the loss of her two-year-old son Nash."
Dr. Stone, who retired in 2006 after 24 years as a professor and researcher, was honored for his work at a U.S. Congressional reception in D.C. earlier this year, Hargis said. Bonnie Stone worked for the Institutional Research and Information Management department.
Nicolette Strauch, a sophomore majoring in chemical engineering, was hurt in the fatality wreck that killed her son. She works in the Parking and Transit department of OSU.
The fourth fatality victim is Nakita Prabhakar, an MBA student from the University of Central Oklahoma. She was at the parade with friends.
Hargis said the school will have counselors on site for employees and students starting Monday, on the third floor of the Student Union. Therapy dogs from Pete's Pet Posse will also be on hand.
OSU is planning a memorial service and will be releasing information soon.
Hargis released a list of some of the funding accounts established for victims. Stillwater Medical Center Foundation has started a fund to assist victims and their families.
