CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- The University of North Carolina will mark the second anniversary of the shooting death of the school's former student body president by dedicating a garden in her memory.
The Eve Marie Carson Garden will be dedicated Thursday afternoon in Polk Place, a grassy area behind the Campus Y. The 22-year-old student from Athens, Ga., was found shot death in the early morning of March 5, 2008, in a Chapel Hill neighborhood.
Two men have been charged in her death.
The school says the garden will honor all UNC-Chapel Hill students, past and future, who die before they graduate.
After speeches by officials including Chancellor Holden Thorp, a Carolina blue ribbon will be cut and students will plant ferns in the garden.
