Marshall memorial plaque

A memorial plaque dedicated to the lives lost in the Marshall plane crash, located on ECU's campus.

The crash took the lives of 75 members of the Marshall football program as they returned from a matchup in Greenville, North Carolina, according to the original report. The lives lost in the crash included 37 players, eight coaches, five crew members and 15 members of Marshall’s football booster organization.

ECU-affiliated communities and organizations have shown their support for Marshall University  on social media throughout the day, including ECU Athletics and Interim Chancellor Ron Mitchelson.

“ECU’s heart is with Marshall today,” Mitchelson tweeted. “We are all Marshall this day.”
