Dear UW-Eau Claire campus community,
The UW-Eau Claire Police Department has informed me that the body of David Patrick Rodgers was recovered Monday evening from the Chippewa River. David, a sophomore mathematics education major, fell into the river April 19.
I have been in close contact with the family over the last two months, and I spoke with David's parents last evening, sharing with them our campus community's continued support. Please keep David's family in your hearts during this difficult time.
