President Keck Issues Statement on Loss of Lion Alum and DPD Officer Rogelio Santander

All of us at Rogelio Santander’s University are devastated by this terrible loss. Rogelio chose to major in Criminal Justice and was engaged in helping maintain a safe life for us all.

To lose his own young life in the line of duty is a tragedy. Our hearts and prayers go out to Rogelio’s family and his friends. Our flags on the campus at Texas A&M-Commerce are at half-staff in Rogelio’s honor.
