Mass. school to be named for fallen soldier
NORFOLK, Mass. (AP) -- A new elementary school in Norfolk has been named in part for a town native and Norwich University alumnus who was killed in Iraq.
U.S. Army Sgt. Adam Kennedy was killed by an improvised explosive device in April 2007 at age 25.
On Saturday, Kennedy's family and five Norwich students who belong to the Mountain and Cold Weather Company, as Kennedy did, honored him at the dedication of the Freeman-Kennedy School.
The Norwich students also performed a flag detail during the dedication.
The new school is replacing Kennedy's alma mater.
Kennedy graduated from Norwich in 2004 with a computer science degree.
