African School To Be Named In Morgan Harrington's Memory

Bianca Spinosa from Newsplex.com is reporting:
Nearly seven months after the day Morgan Harrington disappeared, the case into her death remains unsolved.
Her story, though, is getting some new attention in the media at the same time her legacy is being defined.
Harrington, a 20-year-old Virginia Tech student, disappeared on October 17 after attending a METALLICA concert at the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville. Her body was found in January on an Albemarle County farm.
Before her death, Harrington planned on going with her mother, Gil, to Zambia this year to see the Omni School and the children she heard so much about.
Her murder ended those plans, but the education major's memory lives on. The groundbreaking on a school for second and third graders in Zambia recently took place, and it will be named after Harrington.
In her blog, Gil Harrington said "These kids are being educated to help them break out of a bare subsistence existence and become leaders in their community and their country. Morgan will make a difference in so many young lives. She is gone, but her legacy lives on in a beautiful and magnificent way."
