RSU Student Groups to Host April 20 Concert to Benefit Student Memorial Fund
Two Rogers State University student groups are organizing an April 20 concert to honor the memory of Jacob "Jake" Dexter, a broadcasting student killed in an automobile accident last year.
The Student Broadcasting Association (SBA) and the Student Activities Board will present the 6th annual JamBand concert in conjunction with the university's Spring Fling 2006 activities. The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, April 20, in the Will Rogers Auditorium on the Claremore campus. Cost is $5, or $3 with a student ID.
Proceeds from the show will benefit the Jacob Dexter Memorial Fund, with which the organizers intend to plant a tree in his honor on campus and to potentially fund a memorial scholarship for RSU communication students. While at RSU, Dexter was a member of the SBA and the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity. He also served as co-host of the RSU Radio show "Jake and Misti in the Mornings." A Claremore High School graduate, he was very active in theatre and the Boy Scouts, and served as the Claremore Zebra mascot.
The featured bands for JamBand VI include:
