According to Sharon Ashton, UNF will present the degree during the Spring 2016 Commencement Ceremony.

UNF senior Nicholas Hare died on Aug. 28 after being shot by his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Later that night, the suspect attempted suicide.

According to a GoFundMe in Hare’s name, Hare was 34 years old and a civil engineering student in his last year at UNF. Dean of Students Thomas Van Schoor confirmed his enrollment and major.

Spinnaker will update with more information as it becomes available.
