Carson-Newman officials have begun a fund to benefit the Matt Cahoon, a C-N athletic trainer whose wife Sierra, son and unborn child were killed Monday when a driver allegedly purposefully struck them with his car.  

"It is with heavy hearts that we announce a terrible tragedy within our Carson-Newman family. One of our athletic trainers, Matt Cahoon, lost his wife, Sierra, and his two year old son yesterday afternoon. Our Carson-Newman Athletics and University family are heartbroken of this tragic loss. During this time of need, we are here for Matt and we are here to support the Wilson/Cahoon family," the university said in a statement. "A fund at the University has been established to benefit the Cahoon family. Those wishing to contribute, may give online to "The Randall and Kay O'Brien Benevolent Fund" at: www.cn.edu/cahoonfamilyfund. Donations may also be given by calling the University at 865-471-3233."
