Campbellsville University news
Campbellsville University students returning from Niger on a missions trip are safe.
The students, along with Ed Pavy, director of campus ministries, and Trent Creason, campus ministries intern, were on a US Airways jetliner when the plane was diverted to Maine from the Paris-to-North Carolina flight.
"We are very thankful that the Campbellsville University staff and students, as well as all on US Airways flight 787, are safe and on their way home," Dr. Michael V. Carter said.
The group of 11 from Campbellsville University were returning from Niger where they had spent the past two weeks on a mission trip.
"We appreciate the many phone calls and emails of concern about the safety of our CU staff and students and look forward to their return home," Dr. Carter said.
James Dean, director of residence life, was meeting the crew at the Louisville airport later tonight.
