On April 16, William & Mary held a moment of silence in recognition of the hardships caused by the coronavirus pandemic and in honor of the health care providers and essential workers on the front lines. After a few words from President Rowe and a time of quiet reflection, the Wren Bell rang and members of the William & Mary Choir sang “Shenandoah.” The bell has rung at many crucial times in our history as a symbol of the university’s resilience.
