UGA to hold candlelight vigil for dead community members

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — The University of Georgia will hold a candlelight service to remember four students killed in a car crash and several other members of the university community who’ve died in the past year.

The service planned for 7 p.m. Tuesday is an annual event to honor university students and employees who passed away.

It holds special significance this year, coming shortly after the April 27 car crash that took the lives of four students and left one other critically injured.

On Tuesday, names of the more than two dozen students, faculty and staff members who have died will be read aloud on the steps of the chapel, following by the toll of the chapel bell and the lighting of a candle as each name is read.
