Join the family and friends of Justin Flowers to celebrate his life with a dedication ceremony at J.P. Taravella High School.
Justin Flowers, a well-known freshman at J.P. Taravella High School, was respected by his teachers and peers. He died in a hit and run incident in March 2014.  The purpose of this event is to celebrate the life of this young man and to raise awareness regarding the situation that took his life. The school is helping Justin’s family raise funds to contribute towards a monetary reward.
The ceremony will occur at the front of the school in the memorial garden. The school community will celebrate Justin’s life and memory with performances from the school’s JROTC, orchestra program, and select singers, and with speeches from J.P. Taravella students, who were close friends of Justin. Members of Justin’s family will also share memories of Justin.
In addition, representatives from local law enforcement and Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) will provide information about the hit and run incident.
The ceremony will conclude with a dedication of a stone that will be placed in the school’s memorial garden in Justin’s honor.
