Celebrating the Life of Dr. Robert Bland

On September 28, 2017, Dr. Robert Bland, long time English professor, mentor, and friend of Randall University students, faculty, staff, and alumni passed away after a battle with cancer. We rejoice in the fact that he now resides in the presence of our Savior, but grieve his loss to each of us. At Dr. Bland's request, there will be no public service. However, to honor his life and bless his family we are collecting remembrances of Dr. Bland. You are welcome to leave a written note or upload a brief video (1 minute or less) sharing Dr. Bland's impact on your life, via our Facebook page. We will then compile these memories to be given to the Bland family.

You may also send a note or card to the Bland Family via Randall, by emailing it to mcoffman@ru.edu  or mailing it to:
