CAHR pays tribute to alumnus Samuel Pegram

Posted on 12 March 2019

CAHR alumnus 2017/18 Samuel Pegram passed away in the Ethiopian Airlines accident on Sunday 10 March.

We have learnt with profound sorrow that our alumnus Sam Pegram has passed away in the Ethiopian Airlines accident this past Sunday.
May we express our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to Sam's parents and family, to his friends and colleagues.

The staff at the Centre for Applied Human Rights and York Law School and his fellow students will remember Sam as an exceptionally bright student committed to human rights and humanitarianism, and as a profoundly kind soul. As teachers we have the privilege to meet students who move us to the core – Sam did that.

May you rest in peace, Sam.

A candle vigil will be organised at the University of York. Details to follow.
