Staff editorial: Remembering Taylor Hubbard

The Hatchet’s editorial board remembers sophomore Taylor Hubbard, and notes that this loss is one the entire University shares.

Even as GW seniors eagerly accept their diplomas and experience a once-in-a-lifetime sense of opportunity and elation, the GW community is not immune to the deep sadness of the loss of sophomore Taylor Hubbard. Hubbard, who fell out of a fifth floor window in Guthridge Hall early Saturday morning, passed away at GW Hospital on Sunday. During Sunday’s Commencement ceremony on the National Mall, President Steven Knapp expressed his sadness and requested a moment of silence in Hubbard’s honor, and we too share our deepest condolences over the loss of a fellow student.
