A memorial service for Katie Weinstein, who was a second-year graduate student at Dodge College of Film and Media Arts, has been scheduled for 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1 in Folino Theater. Dodge College graduate level classes will be cancelled so that everyone who wishes may attend.
Weinstein, an Illinois native, passed away suddenly Saturday, Jan. 7. She was 28.
“Katie was an outstanding student, and those who worked with her describe her not only as talented but also as kind, cheerful, and hard-working,” said Jerry Price, Ph.D. Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Dean of Students.
A memory book is being created for the Weinstein family and anyone who would like to contribute thoughts, stories, photos or production stills is invited to send them to email@example.com.
In addition, the Weinstein family is creating a thesis film scholarship fund for graduate students for which they are requesting donations in lieu of flowers, for those who wish to participate. Details will follow.
