Dear Welch College Family,
As many of you know by now, this afternoon a worker under the employment and supervision of SouthLand Constructors, our construction management firm, was killed in a construction-related accident on the Welch campus. We are praying earnestly for his family, that the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard their hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
The Welch family is shocked and saddened by this sudden, tragic accident. SouthLand Constructors has been very concerned about the utmost safety of this project for the past two-and-a-half years, and we are deeply saddened by this tragic occurrence. We lift this family up in prayer, asking our entire college family to join us in prayer in this very painful moment for this family and our campus community.
