Our Deepest Condolences

A Message from the Executive Dean

Dear friends,
I want to share the message below from John Bruno, the chair of Department of Psychology. I share his sentiments – we all are deeply affected by the death of Reagan Tokes and our thoughts are with her family and friends. This is a tragic occasion for Columbus and the entire Buckeye community. As John notes below – if you need anything, please do not hesitate to ask.
David Manderscheid
Executive Dean and Vice Provost

On behalf of the students, staff, and faculty of the Department of Psychology I want to send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Reagan Tokes. This senseless, tragic loss of one of our kindest and gentlest students defies understanding – it hurts at all levels. I encourage members of the Department and other friends of Reagan to reach out for assistance in coping with this horrible loss.
In sadness,

Dr. John P. Bruno
Chairperson; Dept. of Psychology
