Honoring Lexus Williams

Bubbles were blown into the sky today to honor the life of student Lexus Williams.

Last week, the Vol State pre-nursing major was allegedly shot and killed by her husband in Gallatin. Her two young children were in the back seat of the car when the shooting occurred.

Students and friends organized a memorial event today, which took place outside of the Duffer Plaza on campus; the event was coordinated by Lexus’ close friend, Keonya Milam.

“She was so encouraging. Every time she walks in a room, everyone lit up. We had two classes together, I knew her for about two years. She was there for people. She always had a smile on her face, even though she was struggling. She was a fighter,” said Lodosha Holt.

“She had a fun personality, she was bubbly and smiled a lot - she will be missed. She would have been a great nurse, and she loved her kids,” said Tashena Martinez.

“Helping her family. Helping her children. That is how we can honor her. We can honor her by banding together as a community in love, in love and in love,” said Minister Bobby Samuels of the Emmanuel Temple, who gave a speech during the event.

Lexus is survived by Wisdom Journey Williams and Israel Lamontez Williams.
