Botham Jean Memorial Dedication Ceremony
Harding University will remember and honor the life of Botham Jean by unveiling a memorial bearing his image in front of the David B. Burks American Heritage Building. A dedication ceremony will be held on what would have been Jean’s birthday Wednesday, Sept. 29, at 1 p.m. The ceremony is open to the public.
Jean was a 2016 alumnus of the University from St. Lucia who was tragically killed Sept. 6, 2018, at his home in Dallas. During his time at Harding, he was a member of the Good News Singers, a resident assistant, an intern for the Rock House campus ministry, and a leader in Sub T-16 men’s social club. Jean frequently led worship during daily chapel services and other campus events. He was well known for his charismatic and powerful song leading.
