Candlelight vigil celebrates student’s life

Family and friends of Corey Gowin gather Monday for a candlelight vigil in the Fanner breezeway in remembrance of Gowin. They told stories of his inspiration to the community and how he affected their lives. Gowin, a John A. Logan student, was hit while crossing the street in his wheelchair Thursday on highway 13 in front of University Mall. He later died from sustained injuries. For a full story on the vigil please see
