VHCC to Host Candlelight Vigil for School Shooting Victims
Posted Date: 12/17/2012

Community members are encouraged to join the Virginia Highlands Community College campus community Tuesday evening (Dec. 18) for a brief ceremony in remembrance of those killed during last week’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

The ceremony is sponsored by the VHCC Student Government Association and will begin at 6 p.m. on the Campus Commons. Following brief comments, those attending will be invited to join in a moment of silence, a candlelight vigil, and the singing of “Silent Night.”

Collection boxes also will be available for those interested in donating stuffed animals, which will be given to local rescue squads, police departments and other public service agencies throughout the region that assist children in crisis situations.

For additional information, please contact the VHCC Student Government Association at
