ICON community mourns loss of student Ashley Block

It is with great sadness that we share that ICON/Anthropology student Ashley Block passed away on September 12th, as a result of being struck by a motor vehicle while riding her bicycle. Ashley was a bright star within the ICON community, and well beyond, as has been evident by the outpouring of sentiment since the accident. We at CICR and ICON will be helping facilitate ways to commemorate Ashley’s life with other groups and individuals in the near future, so please stay tuned. Our thoughts are with her family and all the people who grieve for Ashley.
