UI Reacts to Cheerleader’s Death in AM Crash

The following statements from the University of Idaho express our sadness at the death of University of Idaho student Angelina Cabrera, who died in a car accident this morning:

“The loss of a young life profoundly affects us all. I and the university community extend our deepest sympathies to Angelina Cabrera’s family and friends. Our community is diminished by her death” — UI President Timothy White.


“We are so saddened by the loss of Angelina Cabrera today. Our deepest sympathies are with her family at this time. Angelina’s spirit and outlook and her very active participation in the university’s community life, including her work on the Spirit Squad cheerleading team, make her loss widely and deeply felt. Our thoughts are also with Katelyn Dillon and her family as she recovers from the accident. The University of Idaho has notified staff in the university residence halls with this sad news. We are also making grief counseling available to students, including residence hall mates and the Spirit Squad team” — Dean of Students Bruce Pitman, Dean of Students.


“We are profoundly saddened by Angelina’s death. Her energy and enthusiasm made her a vital member of the spirit squad. She will be missed tremendously” — Ashley Coker, Spirit Squad Coordinator
