Memorial service for Alan Ebersole set for Dec. 6

A memorial service for Princeton sophomore Alan Ebersole will be held at 5:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 6, in the University Chapel. A reception and buffet dinner will follow in Butler College's Wu Dining Hall.

Residents and staff members of Butler College, where Ebersole lived, are creating a scrapbook that will be presented to his family at the reception. Anyone interested in contributing can use stationery provided on the piano in the Wu Hall lounge or can send remembrances or photos to Betty Stein or Stacy Chen .

Ebersole, a member of the University's men's swimming and diving team from Vicksburg, Miss., died in October in an accident while swimming in the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast. He was 20 years old.

Ebersole studied Spanish and politics, among other academic pursuits, and competed in the 200- and 100-meter breaststroke. In Vicksburg, Ebersole graduated in 2003 from St. Aloysius High School and was salutatorian of his class. He was a member of the high school's swim team coached by his father, Bruce.
