Richard Collins III would have graduated from Bowie State Tuesday with the rest of his fellow students if not for the horrific stabbing that took his life last week at the University of Maryland after leaving a party.

At Bowie State University’s 2017 commencement ceremony they held a moment of silence for Collins. The president of Bowie State also spoke about Collins during the commencement ceremony. The commencement ceremony has been made available for viewing and you can see Collins moment at the 2:14:25 mark.

A truly heartbreaking situation that is currently under investigation by the FBI to determine if this horrific act was, in fact, a hate crime.
