The Southern University cheerleader died tragically

The Southern University family is mourning the loss of student-athlete Arlane Miller.

The first-grader posted a heartbreaking message on her Instagram on Wednesday, thanking her family and friends for their support, while declaring that she was ready to take her own life.

“To everyone I love, just remember it’s not your fault and I pray you don’t find fault in my situation,” she wrote at the end of her post.

Southern issued the following statement:

We are mourning the loss of Arlan Miller, Southern University’s starting cheerleader.

On May 4, 2022, at approximately 9:00 p.m., the Southern University Athletics Department was notified of a social media post that ultimately led to this unfortunate post.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about mental or behavioral health issues and help reduce the stigma that so many experience.

We ask for your prayers, love and support.
