A commemorative memorial is currently under construction in Belk Plaza in front of Kennedy Hall to memorialize Reed Parlier, Riley Howell, and the other victims of the April 30, 2019 shooting. The design features an arching metal structure with strings of lights representing the night sky. Curving paths, trees and landscaping create a space for contemplation and reflection.
