STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State University and the City of Stillwater will hold a community-wide memorial service and benefit concert to honor the lives lost.

The memorial is scheduled to happen at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3 in the Gallagher-Iba Arena. 

The memorial will also celebrate the lives saved and the first responders. It will be followed by a benefit concert featuring Corey Kent White, OSU student and Voice 2015 contestant.

Donations will be taken at the concert for the Stillwater Strong Fund established by the Stillwater Medical Center Foundation.

 “Following tragedy, it is important to bring people together to not only honor the victims and survivors, but unite as a community to show our support and thank the many people who responded to this horrific event,” said OSU President Burns Hargis. 

Four people were killed as a result of the crash and 46 others were injured. Killed were retired OSU Regents professor Marvin Stone;  his wife and OSU employee Bonnie Stone; two-year-old Nash (Strauch) Lucas, son of OSU student and employee Nicolette Strauch; and University of Central Oklahoma MBA student Nakita Prabhakar Nakal.

“I believe this service will continue the journey the City of Stillwater and university were forced to travel together,” Stillwater Mayor Gina Noble said. “The memorial service will be another opportunity for us to come together and continue to heal our community.” 

Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb, an OSU graduate, will join Hargis and Noble in delivering a message at the service. 

The service will be live streamed on OState.TV
