Dear members of the Xavier community,

Today, I am especially proud to serve as President of Xavier University of Louisiana. Last evening, five Xavier students: Demetrius Brown, Ronald Haroon, Markevion Kennebrew, Moses Micheal, and Domonique Prophete provided a powerful example to all of us of what it means to be a Xavierite.

Without any regard for their own safety, these Xavier students saved the life of a man whose car had crashed into the Washington Avenue Canal. These students were ready to spring into action, forming a human chain and pulling the victim to safety. The entire XULA community congratulates these young men on their bravery. Their heroic actions are a living testament to our, still present, mission of being of service to our brothers and sisters whenever or wherever the need.

Thank you and may God Bless you,
