A freshman cheerleader at Louisiana Southern University and A&M College has died, university officials announced Thursday.

Arlana Miller was a freshman from Texas majoring in agriculture at the Baton Rouge campus and a member of the school’s cheerleading team, according to a statement released Thursday by university chancellor Ray L. Belton. The school did not release his cause of death. NBC News reported that he was 19 years old.

“Our entire campus community is deeply saddened by the untimely death of Arlana Miller,” Belton said in the statement as she extended condolences to her friends and family.

The university’s athletic director, Roman Banks, said in a statement Thursday that the night before, around 9 p.m., the athletic department was notified of “a social media post that ultimately resulted in this unfortunate announcement.” The statement then shared information about counseling resources for students, specifically student-athletes.

“We ask for your prayers, love and support,” the statement continued. “Our deepest condolences to The Miller Family, SU Cheer and friends. We love you Arlana #ForeverJag.”

Both the university and the athletic department noted in their statements that May is Mental Health Awareness Month, “a time to raise awareness about mental or behavioral health issues and to help reduce stigma that they live so much”.
