Comair crash saddens community
WILMORE, KY— Members of the Asbury College community were deeply saddened at the news of the Comair Flight 5191 crash at the Bluegrass airport in Lexington on Sunday, Aug. 27.
Many have inquired if Asbury College has been personally affected by this accident. Several members of our community have lost friends and relatives, including a young alumna who lost her father. We do not believe any Asbury College faculty, staff or students were directly involved in the crash.
Our alumni are involved in helping the families during their time of grief. Kerry McKinney ’01, disaster coordinator with the Bluegrass chapter of the American Red Cross, is coordinating meals and counseling services for the families affected by this tragedy.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to all of the families and friends who mourn their loved ones during this time.
