Over two hundred students, faculty, and staff gathered in the quad for a candlelight vigil October 5 to honor the passing of Darton Police Officer Anthony Hardy. Hardy served at Darton for eighteen months and had become admired and respected by all on campus. The evening included a slideshow tribute and words from Carol Ann Ham, Eric O'Cain, Derek Johnson, and Chief of Police, James Brackin. Students also wrote messages to his family in several scrapbooks placed around campus.
