We come to you with sad and difficult news. Early this morning we learned one of our students was the victim of a shooting in Chicago, Illinois. Jacquice Baylock, a sophomore and a member of our football team was killed in the incident.
Any time we lose a student it is a sad occasion, but it is particularly difficult to lose a student through such a senseless act. Jacquice has been a great example and representative of our Triton Football team and Iowa Central Community College.
