Rochester students hold candlelight vigil in memory of their classmate
ROCHESTER - Students from Spaulding High School have organized a candlelight vigil in memory of Eve Tarmey, the 17-year-old found dead in a motel room last Saturday of an apparent drug overdose.
"We are all aware of the growing epidemic this state is currently under, and now this hits home for us. As students we believe there is something we can do to help this current issue while remembering the life of our fellow classmate, friend, and someone who would've been walking across the stage to graduate with us this year. We believe it is important to come together as a community and remember Eve for who she was - and how this tragedy can inspire us to find a solution to this issue in Eve's memory and everyone else struggling or who have lost the fight to addiction," one of the students who helped to organize the event wrote online.
The vigil is planned Sunday for the Rochester Commons between 6 and 7:30 p.m.
