Concordia sophomore Lucas Anderson passed away this past Saturday in his family’s home. Anderson, age 26, was a talented pianist, and his talent was greatly admired by his peers and mentors, namely Dr. Jay Hershberger, Anderson’s private teacher. Anderson is greatly missed, and The Concordian would like to offer our sincere condolences to his family. A memorial service will be held today, March 17, at 3 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church in Fargo. A visitation will take place from 2 to 3 p.m. at the same location.
