Canisius Hosts Remembrance Weekend Events

Zeneta Everhart

Canisius hosted several events as part of the city’s “5/14 Remembrance Weekend: Reflection, Healing & Hope,” formed by Mayor Byron Brown to honor and memorialize the lives lost, and support and pray for all those impacted by the racially-motivated shooting at the Tops Friendly Markets store on the East Side of Buffalo.

On Saturday, May 13, “Turning Trauma into Triumph” was held on the Canisius campus. The event, coordinated by Zeneta Everhart ’11, included conference sessions, a reading by Poet Jillian Hanesworth, a musical performance by Drea D’Nur, African drummers and more.

Wigley Named ECA Distinguished Research Fellow


Professor Emeritus Charles Wigley was named a Distinguished Research Fellow by the Eastern Communication Association at its 114th annual convention. Award presenter Dr. Jordan Atkinson highlighted that one of Wigley’s coauthored articles has been cited over “eleven hundred times.” Committee members considered his research record and overall contributions to the organization, the wide impact of his research on verbal aggressiveness, the use of his academic research on jury selection by law firms in the United States and England, and his conceptual articles on the proper use of some complex statistical protocols.
