I am stunned by this morning’s news that rising SMG senior Daniela Lekhno and two other Boston University students were killed in an automobile accident while studying in New Zealand. The accident injured five more BU students. From the first class in Introduction to Law in spring 2011 I came to know Daniela’s acute intelligence, common sense, and strong moral compass. She was a leader in class discussion, an outstanding student, and a lovely young woman. Her loss is a terrible blow to the School of Management and Boston University communities, but of course our loss pales next to her family’s. It is a very sad day for the family, friends, and colleagues of all those involved in the accident.
