Statement on the Deaths of Three Dickinson State University Students from Richie Smith, State Board of Higher Education President, and Bill Goetz, North Dakota University System Chancellor


BISMARCK, N.D. - Members of the State Board of Higher Education and faculty, staff and students of the North Dakota University System are deeply saddened by the loss of Kyrstin Gemar, Ashley Neufeld and Afton Williamson, three outstanding Dickinson State University students.

Each of these women touched many lives and was a source of great pride and joy for family and friends. It is our sincere hope that the outpouring of support from the Dickinson community and the state of North Dakota will bring comfort to those who were most personally touched by this tragedy. We hope the families, classmates and teammates of Kyrstin, Ashley and Afton will find strength in one another.

As president of the State Board of Higher Education and chancellor of the North Dakota University System, we realize this is a very difficult loss for members of the Dickinson State University family; please know that many resources from your fellow institutions will be available to support you during this healing process.
