Humboldt State staff member killed in fiery bus crash
26 year old Arthur Arzola, an admissions counselor at Humboldt State University is among the ten who were killed in a fiery bus crash in Orland Thursday.
From the Humboldt State University Website:
Humboldt State University is saddened to share that Arthur Arzola, a staff member in the Admissions Office, was among those who died in yesterday’s bus accident. He had been accompanying the students on their trip.
Arzola is remembered by colleagues at Humboldt State for his passionate commitment to helping low-income and first-generation students get into college. He dedicated his career to that work. He had been working as HSU’s Admissions representative in the Los Angeles area for the last year.
The campus community extends its deepest condolences to Arthur’s family and friends. Words cannot express our sadness, and we are here to support them in any way possible.
