OSU To Unveil Remember The Four Memorial

Posted: Updated:

Oklahoma State University will unveil a memorial in remembrance of former Cowgirl basketball head coach Kurt Budke, assistant coach Miranda Serna and OSU supporters Olin and Paula Branstetter on Thursday at 3 p.m.

The four died in a plane crash on Nov. 17, 2011 in Arkansas while on a recruiting trip.

"This memorial is a fitting tribute to four special people who cared a great deal about Oklahoma State," OSU head coach Jim Littell said. "It is important they are never forgotten and having a permanent reminder is the appropriate way to honor them and their loyalty to OSU."

The memorial, on the northeast side of the OSU Athletics Center, is highlighted by illuminated images of the four individuals. The forms are arranged in a perfect square, symbolizing the completion of four unique lives.

In addition to an image of the individual, each lighted panel features an in memoriam script provided by the respective families.

An inward-looking space with stone benches along each of the four will allow for an area of quiet reflection.

As a whole, the memorial will serve to honor the memory of the four and exemplify their commitment to OSU.
