Memories of Mario Mayorga


High Point University student Mario Mayorga tragically passed away on April 24. The university held a prayer vigil on April 25 and a memorial service on April 27 where students and community members came together to remember Mayorga’s life. Mayorga was a 19-year-old sophomore and member of the Kappa Alpha order fraternity. He also held a job at the post office on campus. Mayorga is deeply missed by the entire HPU family and our community.

“Mario was such a personable guy. He always had a smile on his face. He was the guy who got your packages [through his job at the campus post office], the guy who waved to you on the promenade, or the guy who stopped you to ask how your day was going. He was one of the nicest people on this campus, and he will always be remembered.” – Sonya Kedhr

“Mario was by far the sweetest guy I have ever met. He loved his friends and his brothers at KA. He will be dearly missed by me and the rest of his High Point family.” – Molly Bufton

“It was Mario’s personality and the way he carried himself that really touched the HPU community. He brought laughter wherever he went and you could always count on him being there for you. He should be remembered as the kind-hearted person he was who worked hard but also loved to have a good time. Mario was taken way too soon from us. My good friend is gone, but he will forever be remembered.” – Eliza Duval
