Gregory Harder Obituary, Death – Gregory Harder has passed away. Greg, the Alvernia football team’s sophomore quarterback, was simultaneously pursuing a master’s degree in sports coaching. In 2021, he was a member of the Dean’s List and Academic Honor Roll for the Middle Atlantic Conference. He will be added to the MAC Academic Roll in January as a result of his success this past semester. Dear Alverna University Community, No university president has ever had to deliver the information I’m going to share with you.
The untimely passing of Gregory Harder, a student at Alverna University, breaks our hearts. Gregory’s untimely death has left our school’s community and those who knew him personally inconsolable. We extend our sympathies to Gregory’s family and all of his friends. We will let the Alvernia neighbors know how they may help the Harder family in the coming days. We are offering assistance and have communicated with the Harder family and Alvernia. Gregory will be honored during a memorial service at the start of the spring semester.
The memorial service details will be disseminated via Alvernia’s email. We really pray for the solace and health of Gregory’s family, friends, and employees as a community. On a tribute board, the Harder family’s neighbors will be able to post messages, images, and videos to share their memories of Gregory. While playing football there, Gregory was pursuing his Masters’s in Athletic Training. The prospect of pursuing a degree in which he had such a keen interest made him ecstatic. Greg, a standout student, was once more chosen for the Middle Atlantic Conference Year Academic Accolade Roll in honor of his superior performance in the classroom this past fall.
Greg initially got the accolade in 2021–2022, during his first year of college. Finally, we are aware of how upsetting and confusing this news is for a lot of people in our campus community.
