Union students and others write messages on new dorm

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - About 50 Union University students and resident assistants have written messages and Scriptures on the concrete slab floor of a new dorm under construction.

A tornado tore apart much of the campus Feb. 5.

Cheryl Propst left behind Psalm 30, a biblical passage reflecting her story as she recovered from injuries after the tornado, she said. Propst was one of four Union students who wrote messages after being badly injured in the tornado.

Nineteen-year-old Brandon Lang chose to leave the lyrics to the song "Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing" as his message.

Katrina Parker, 21, a Union junior, left words on a concrete floor before it is covered with carpet. She wrote, "Lord, I pray for every student at this campus that they would be completely dependent on you, those now and for years to come."
