UNC To Dedicate Garden In Memory Of Eve Carson

The Eve Marie Carson Garden will be dedicated Thursday afternoon in Polk Place, a grassy area behind the Campus Y, marking the second anniversary of her death.

The 22-year-old student from Athens, Georgia, was found shot to death in the early morning of March 5, 2008, in a Chapel Hill neighborhood.

Two men have been charged in her death, Demario Atwater and Laurence Lovette.

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.

    Very happy they honored her like this. WRAL posts are full of hate
