The Red Memorial, an annual University of Nebraska–Lincoln event to remember and celebrate the lives of students, faculty, staff and alumni who died during the current academic year, is 5:30 p.m. April 12.
Now in its fifth year, the memorial is held at Broyhill Fountain on the Nebraska Union Memorial Plaza. The program will include a brief introduction; musical performances by the Vocal Jazz Ensemble and Bathtub Dogs; and a moment of reflection. Later in the evening, the fountain will be lit red.
The Red Memorial began in 2015 at the request of deceased student Keaton Klein’s family. Klein had a long-standing dream to turn the fountains red and the lighting began to honor his memory.
The memorial is free and open to the public.
