“The pending arrests of two 18-year-olds from Delaware in the Nov. 7 beating of one of our students is welcome news,” said Tom Sloane, senior associate dean of students at West Virginia University. “Such a random and violent act is senseless and has no place in our community – or in our society.

“WVU officials continue to offer love and support to Ryan, the Diviney family and their many loved ones and friends as Ryan’s recovery continues at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.”
