“I would appreciate if you all could support these resolutions,” Olivera said. “I know it would mean a lot for my family and I.”

The resolutions honor the lives of Paulina Derengowski, Ryan Wendler, Alejandro “Alex” Diaz, Sebastian George Ramos, Nadia Anderson, Ian Davis, Rebeca Olivera, Michael Bizub, Kaaren Toutant by displaying papers across campus describing individuals by name, date of birth and date of passing.

Rebeca Olivera, the sister of Sen. Paul Olivera, passed away on Sept. 5 in Monterrey, Mexico.

In honor of his sister, Paul established the Rebeca Olivera Memorial Scholarship Endowed Fund by raising over $17,000 with the help of others.

It is unknown when the resolutions will come into effect.
