BCCM Mourns Passing of Alfonso Gomez
Wednesday, September 28, 2022:
Alfonso Gomez, a Brass studies major, was a true leader in spirit and by example. He possessed a magnificent smile that could light up a room. His practice discipline is legendary—without cliché he was the first to arrive and one of the last to leave. Throughout the lockdown he was a strong contributor to online classes and had a strong impact on the mood of his colleagues and professors. Rest In Peace, Alfonso, you will be missed by many!
We encourage anyone who may need extra help in the grieving process to use the campus resources available at CAPS.
