On April 30, the University family paused to celebrate and remember the life of Fisk senior and psychology major Aerian Paige Hennings who passed away on Friday, April 24 in Nashville, Tennessee. Aerian’s service was held in the Fisk Memorial Chapel and was attended by family, friends and members of the university family. The service featured the University Choir in addition to a moving tribute and eulogy by Fisk Professor Dr. Jonathan Stadler and Bishop Joseph W. Walker III of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, respectively.
During the service, Fisk Interim Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. Partick Liverpool announced that Aerian will be awarded a B.A. degree in psychology during Fisk’s 135th Commencement celebration on Monday, May 4 at The Temple Church. Our thoughts and prayers remain with Aerian’s family and friends.
