On October 22, the University of Utah lost one of our own. Lauren McCluskey, an accomplished student-athlete from Pullman, Washington, was killed on campus. She was a senior, majoring in communication, with plans to graduate next May. Lauren was highly regarded as a member of the university’s track and field team, specializing in the high jump. Her parents say she loved to sing and has always had a great deal of strength and determination.
