Florida school remembers 6 killed in Haiti quake
Lynn University plans week of volunteering to honor students, professors killed in Haiti quake
Lynn University has scheduled a week of community service events to honor the memories of four students and two professors who were killed in the 2010 earthquake in Haiti.
Starting Monday, students, faculty and staff at the Boca Raton school will volunteer in food drives, a beach cleanup, a tree planting, house painting and other service projects.
In March, the school dedicated a memorial plaza to the students and professors who were on a mission trip in Haiti when the earthquake struck. Eight other students on the trip were not injured.
Saturday marks the third anniversary of the earthquake that officials say killed more than 300,000 people and displaced more than a million others. Lynn University will ring six church bells at 4:53 p.m. Saturday, the moment the earthquake hit.
