Celebration of Life - Matthew Kohlenberg

Add this event to your calendar  Sep 7/13 (3:00 pm)

In the August 29 issue of the Chronicle Herald, the family of Matthew Kohlenberg published the following tribute to their son and brother who passed away suddenly while on summer break from his studies at Acadia. Matthew was an outstanding student who was looking forward to returning to his Honours Philosophy program this September. Matthew was held in very high regard by faculty and fellow students in the Philosophy  Department as well as a wide circle of friends throughout campus. We are deeply saddened by Matthew’s passing and I know you will join me in our sympathy for the Kohlenberg family.

The family has organized a celebration of Matthew’s life which will take place on Saturday, September 7th at 3 pm in the Garden Room of the K.C. Irving Environmental Science Centre – all members of the campus community are invited to attend.
