SUNY Cortland will host a vigil this evening to honor the memory of a student who was killed in a car crash Wednesday morning.

The Vigil In Memory of Glennys Cordero will be held at 7 p.m. on the steps of Corey Union.

Cordero, who was from the Bronx, graduated from Tompkins Cortland Community College before enrolling at SUNY Cortland as an art and art history major. She was known for being active and outgoing on campus, SUNY Cortland President Erik Bitterbaum said in a statement to the campus community.

Cordero was the chief photographer at the SUNY Cortland 2019 Kente Celebration, an event that serves as a rite of passage for multicultural students.

More of Cordero's artwork can be found on her website.

Any questions about tonight's event can be directed to the SUNY Cortland Multicultural Life and Diversity Office at 607-753-2336 or mulitcultural.life@cortland.edu.
