    The names of more than 100 students, parents and alumni have been submitted to The University of Scranton Royals Respond Honor Roll, which recognizes members of the University community who are responding to the pandemic. The list includes nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, residents, physical therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, firemen, police officers and others who are in some way are responding the coronavirus. Honorees represent eight states and Washington D.C., and include some of the hardest-hit areas of the country.

    The Honor Roll is part of a “Royals Respond” initiative the University launched April 1 to recognize, honor and thank alumni and other members of the University community who are selflessly responding to the pandemic. Students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents and friends can add their own name or that of others connected to the University to the Honor Roll. University community members can also share individual stories, photos with captions, news coverage, video footage or reflections that may be featured on the Royals Respond section of the University’s Royal News website and shared in social media and other University publications in the weeks and months ahead. Visit scranton.edu/royalsrespond to submit names to the Honor Roll or stories for publication.

    Also as part of this initiative, the University will light a red cross on a blue background on the St. Thomas Gateway from sunset until 10 p.m. each evening to honor all those who are bravely responding to COVID-19, especially acknowledging the service of alumni and members of the University community.
