In Memoriam—Rahsheka Keith

To: UCSC Community

From: Provost Helen Shapiro and CAO Deana Slater, Colleges Nine and Ten

UCSC's Rainbow Theater is hosting a special event on Wednesday, February 2, for Rahsheka Keith, a former College Ten student who died in a snowboarding accident this past weekend. The memorial begins at 6:30 p.m., in Namaste Lounge.

Rahsheka, who attended UCSC from Summer 2006 through Spring of 2010, was a gifted student leader. A psychology major, she also was actively involved in Rainbow Theater as well as Engaging Education, a student–initiated outreach and retention center for academic excellence.

Please join us for Wednesday's memorial — and in expressing our condolences to Rahsheka's family and many friends.

The family has planned a memorial service for Rahsheka Keith. It begins at 11 a.m. on Friday, February 4, at Cornerstone Mission Baptist Church, 6190 3rd Street, San Francisco, 94124. The family has requested that flowers be sent to the church rather than the family home.
