Students honor late professor with 'Day of Service'

Two years after the death of Professor Sue Marcum, students are still working to honor her memory.

The second annual Sue Marcum Day of Service will be held on Nov. 17 through the AU Campus Kitchen, a collaboration with St. Luke’s Mission to provide food to the hungry. The event, hosted by the Accounting Club, is a memorial for the late professor who was murdered in her Bethesda home Oct. 25, 2010.

The Campus Kitchen project takes food from local restaurants and cafeterias and distributes the food through Regency House. Those who volunteer are often allowed a free meal as well.

Marcum taught accounting and taxation in the Kogod School of Business. She was also the faculty advisor for the Accounting Club and a faculty brother of Alpha Kappa Psi, which is the professional business fraternity on campus.
