Bennett to host Sandy Hook tribute
The Alpha Delta Epsilon Chapter of Alpha Psi Omega National Honor Society will host a “Sandy Hook Elementary School Remembrance Ceremony” on Thursday, Feb. 14 on the campus of Bennett College. The ceremony will take place on the steps of the Annie Merner Pfeiffer Chapel immediately following the school’s Spring Honors Convocation.
The Convocation, which starts at 11 a.m., will be keynoted by N.C. A&T State University Chancellor Dr. Harold Martin.
The tribute will remember the 20 children and six teachers who lost their lives during the Dec. 14, 2012 school shooting in Newtown, Conn. At the end of the ceremony, a balloon will be released in honor of each child and educator who died.
The public is invited to both the Convocation and tribute. The events are free.
