The passing of LaMont Toliver, Director of the Meyerhoff Scholars Program and Assistant Dean of Undergraduate Education, on February 28, 2012, was a tragic loss for the Meyerhoff Scholars Program family and the entire University community. LaMont graced us with his considerable abilities – his leadership, deep compassion, wisdom, wit, and determination – for 22 years. His example will continue to inspire us.
An on-campus memorial was held on Wednesday, March 7, 2012, at noon in the University Center Ballroom.
