In Memoriam – Alanna Nicole Cousins

To: The Cowell College Community

From: Faye Crosby, Provost, and Jim Carter, College Administrative Officer

We are saddened to learn of the death of Alanna Nicole Cousins, who died in an automobile accident Thursday, April 11. 

On behalf of the College, we extend our condolences and deepest expressions of sympathy to Alanna's family, friends, and loved ones.

Alanna was a first-year student during the 2011-12 academic year and lived at Cowell in Prescott House.  Her intended major was Environmental Studies. She took a leave of absence this year, was living in Santa Cruz, and was planning to re-enroll at UCSC.

Alanna was from the Santa Barabara area and graduated from San Marcos High School.  Those who knew her there described her as a kind, creative, and extraordinary young woman.

As of this date, we do not have information about a memorial service.  Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who knew and loved Alanna.

Please feel free to call the College Office at 459-2253, or the Provost's Office at 459-2251, with any questions, concerns, or requests for information about available support services.
