Leah Hollis
September 06, 2017 : Dean Martin Tuck statement on passing of OUC Student Leah Hollis


The Ohio University Chillicothe campus is grieving the loss of Leah Hollis, a student and peer tutor in the Writing Center, who died Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017.


Leah was a remarkable person who exemplified compassion, creativity, and kindness and who contributed to the success of her fellow students by offering her time and talents to better those around her.


Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and loved ones during this difficult time and we offer our most sincere condolences to them.


The OUC community will be here to support those students impacted by her death, if needed, in any way necessary. A celebration of her life will be planned in the coming days and we ask that students, faculty and staff continue to support one another during this trying time.


The memory of Leah will live on in the hearts of those she touched so dearly as will her legacy at OUC.


With sympathy,
Dean Martin Tuck
