A Tribute to Officer Sean Collier

About a month ago, Officer Sean Collier died in the line of duty while serving at MIT.

In a tribute to him, the THRA put together a memorial tribute which was presented to the MIT Police. (Incidentally, the MIT Police HQ is located right up the street where Tang Hall is.)

We remember Officer Collier in our daily actions, and share in the faith that he had, when we give selflessly for the community.
