A service celebrating the life of Andrew McClune will take place Tuesday, Feb. 18, beginning at 3 p.m. in the main chapel of Syracuse University’s Hendricks Chapel. McClune, 18, died Dec. 13. A native of Lockerbie, Scotland, he was a 2002-03 Lockerbie Scholar at SU.

The service will begin with a greeting from the Rev. Thomas V. Wolfe, dean of Hendricks Chapel. A chaplain will offer a reading and prayer, and several speakers will refect upon McClune.
Among the speakers: Chancellor Kenneth A. Shaw; Judy O’Rourke, senior administrator in the Office of the Vice President for Undergraduate Studies; Graham Herbert, rector of Lockerbie Academy; Ruth McNay, a 2002-03 Lockerbie Scholar; Samuel Gorovitz, professor of philosophy and public administration, who was dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the time the special relationship between Syracuse University and Lockerbie was created; Newhouse professor Lawrence Mason Jr.; representatives from SU’s Division of International Programs Abroad; and students from Sadler Hall and the SU Honors Program.
A reception will follow in the Noble Room of Hendricks Chapel. The service and reception are open to all members of the University and Central New York communities.
