Anthony Washington Memorial
Dear Lincoln Family,
The Lincoln University community is saddened by the loss of one of our students, Anthony V. Washington. Anthony of Forest Hills, New York died in a tragic car accident on Friday evening, November 4, 2011. Anthony was a Senior Business major and was actively involved in the Lincoln community. He was elected by his peers as the 2011-12 Mr. Legacy. In addition, he was the President of Epsilon Epsilon Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated. He was also a member of Boys to Men Mentoring group, had served as a Resident Advisor and was the former King for STARS (Sisters That Are Respected Seriously).
We appreciate your continued prayers and support for our students Phillip E. Tomsic from Grand Junction, MI and Kadeem Fulmore from Rochester, New York. They were injured in the same accident and are hospitalized at Crozer Chester Medical Center in Chester, Pennsylvania. Philip Tomsic is a Senior Criminal Justice major, a member of the Baseball Team, a Student Leader Ambassador and a member of Ziana Fashion Club. Kadeem is a Senior Business major and a member of Epsilon Epsilon Chapter of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated. He is also Student Assistant in the Men’s Center and the Office of Admissions.
