Chancellor and President Mourn Passing of Wendy Anderson

August 21, 2019

08/20/2019

JONESBORO – Arkansas State University Chancellor Kelly Damphousse and ASU System President Charles L. Welch today issued statements after the passing of Wendy Anderson, wife of A-State Football Coach Blake Anderson, last evening.

* * *

On behalf of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Arkansas State University, today we remember the valiant struggle of Wendy Anderson, and keep Blake and the Anderson family in our thoughts and prayers.  We have seen the highs when Wendy briefly was declared cancer free, and watched her bravely face the profound challenge of cancer’s return.  Cancer is a disease that can rob us of our loved ones, of our bodies, but for Wendy, we know that it never touched her soul.

I pray peace and rest to Blake and their family as they prepare for the difficult days ahead. I pray that the great memories of their time with Wendy outweigh the heartache they are feeling today.

Wendy lived her life in victory. I have asked that our university flag be lowered on campus to half-staff today, and tonight, we will celebrate the victory of her life by lighting the Arkansas State University Library clock tower red.

“Please join with all of us as we lift up the Andersons.”

— Arkansas State University Chancellor Kelly Damphousse

“We’re heartbroken for Blake and his family. Wendy fought so courageously the past two years, and the ASU System family will miss her greatly.  I know the Anderson family’s faith will help them through this difficult time, and we will continue to support Blake any way we can.  We all appreciate the outpouring of concern and sympathy from our colleagues throughout the country.”

— ASU System President Charles L. Welch.
