A student aspiring to change lives and help others died in January 2015 before receiving the chance to fulfill that dream. However, the school she attended has not forgotten her dream and will soon make it a reality.
University of Tennessee Health Science Center will award Rachel Stevens a posthumous degree during the college’s spring graduation ceremony on May 26.
Stevens was pursuing an occupational therapy degree when she died. Her parents, Randy and Katrina Stevens of Batesville, Arkansas, will accept the degree on her behalf.
