University mourns for loss of 2 alum

SHIPPENSBURG- It’s uncommon when a university loses one young alumnus, but to lose two recent graduates in the same day is unheard of. On September 7th, Ship found itself in that position. Corey Hunt, a former Red Raider, battled synovial sarcoma, a rare form of cancer that affects the joints. Corey lost his five-year battle to the disease September 7th, 2015 with his family by his side

Amanda DiGirolomo, who graduated with a degree in exercise science, died when she was hit by a taxi in Philadelphia early morning September 7th. Amanda was also a member of Alpha Sigma Tau sorority and is remembered for her fun-loving and free spirited personality. Corey and Amanda were both 25.
