A memorial for two students today in Belpre.

Members of both families gathered around two American Chestnut trees donated by Mayor Lorentz. A memorial, Emily Spencer was a cheerleader and would have graduated this year. And Alex Joy who played sports as well, would have graduated last year.

"It means a lot. It's nice that the community is still remembering Emily and with the trees that they will continue to remember her and the type of person she was at this school," said Mendy Helmick, Emily's Mother."

The planting was organized by the Leadership Education Organization. A group of students who plan positive events in the Belpre community.
