Two students, Hugh Douglas and Christion Files Jr., were killed in a tragic car crash on Labor Day. The Morehouse College announced their sudden, untimely departure from the world in a post on their Facebook page.

The School mourns the loss of their two students who were set to graduate in 2025. Both young men were 25 years old.
