HERKIMER, N.Y. -- Herkimer County Community College held memorial service in honor of alumna Jasmine Finch. Jasmine, 20, was a 2020 Herkimer College graduate and was killed on May 22 after being struck by a car.
Prevention Services Coordinator Amy Fahey opened the service with a short presentation about the risks and dangers of impaired driving, and then attendees heard from several speakers about Jasmine and her role as a student leader on campus.
"She was a student leader, she was she was involved in our student initiative task force," says Fahey. "She would be involved in anything we asked her to with our events she was very visible to students, they knew who she was."
The memorial was followed by a candlelight vigil outside in the academic quad.
