A funeral procession was held for President Bardo on Monday, Mar. 18, 2019.

Late Wichita State President John Bardo will be honored in “a series of events” from May 6-9, according to a university release.

President Bardo died last month at the age of 70 after battling a chronic lung condition.

The main event, the Celebration of Life, will be May 9 from 3-4 p.m. in Shirley Beggs Ballroom in the Rhatigan Student Center. Additionally, keystone programs and events during Bardo’s leadership will be on display outside of Beggs Ballroom. A dessert and ice cream reception will follow the event.

All events will be livestreamed on Facebook and Youtube.

During the week of May 6, a display will be set up in the Cadman Art Gallery in the RSC “showcasing photos, art and other historical mementos from Dr. Bardo’s life.”
