Cabrini College’s criminal justice honor society, Alpha Phi Sigma, has dedicated their efforts to preserving the memory of murder victims. The society has adopted a garden at the Living Memorial Gardens for Victoria, a two-year old victim. Its members plant flowers in an effort to make it an inviting garden.
Alpha Phi Sigma has visited the garden about five times.
“It’s something different that people aren’t aware of,” Megan Wickenheiser, Alpha Phi Sigma president, said.
The society has established a partnership with the Parents of Murdered Children, Delaware County Chapter.
Owners of gardens will be coming to talk at Cabrini on Oct. 21 as part of Alpha Phi Sigma’s death penalty lecture series.
“It’s a good form of helping someone that has suffered, we want to do something that helps heal their hearts,” Wickenheiser said.
