A Nov. 3 fire in his hometown claimed the life of a university student from Maryland.

A “Gathering of Friends” is planned for Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 4:30 p.m. at the labyrinth by Holt Chapel in memory of Elon University student Connor McKeown. Over the summer he had suffered injuries in an automobile accident and was not able to return to Elon for the year.
