Friends University is turning the lights back on the Davis Tower this Friday as a symbol of hope and encouragement for our community. Friends University will host a virtual lighting ceremony on March 27 at 7:45 p.m. on the Friends University website at friends.edu/light-of-hope.
“During this time of uncertainty, our Friends family has decided to turn the lights back on the Davis Tower on the Friends University campus for our city to see as a symbol of hope and encouragement for our community,” said Dr. Amy Bragg Carey, president of Friends University. “As a faith-based community, we want to extend positive well-wishes and express our love, prayers and care to the people of our city, nation and friends during this difficult time.”
Friends University has started a countdown to the virtual event via the university’s website at friends.edu/light-of-hope. The community is invited to also share photos of lights they put up at their homes as a symbol of hope on Friends social media platforms using hashtag, #LightUpICT.
