Cory and Shari Foltz, parents of Stone Foltz, a Bowling Green State University student who died as a result of hazing in March. They spoke in support of a new state law that addresses hazing on July 26, 2021 at the Ohio Statehouse.

The final two fraternity brothers convicted in the hazing death of Bowling Green State University student Stone Foltz were sentenced last month. Colleges and universities have long had a troubled history with hazing that has resulted in student deaths.
