TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - The Seaman High School community is paying tribute to an All-American classmate killed last month.

A sky lantern memorial will be held Sunday night at 9:15 p.m. across North Topeka to honor Seaman graduate Brenna Morgart.

Morgart's fellow classmate and neighbor, AJ Brown,says he's organizing the event in hopes people think of Morgart whenever they see a sky lantern.

He says he distributed 200 lanterns throughout the community, church and ti Morgart's family,but encourages anyone to light one in her honor.

Morgart was killed in a car collision on May 25. The driver, 20-year-old Dustin Leftwich, is held on first-degree murder charges.

Leftwich will be in court next on Tuesday for a probation revocation hearing in an unrelated case.
