Drury Student Killed In Crash In Minnesota

By Austin Robertson. CREATED Jul 9, 2013

Drury University says memorial services will be held today in Kansas City for a student who died in a crash in Minnesota a week ago.

State Police say Elizabeth Hill was a passenger in a car that ran a stop sign and got broadsided by a semi.

Officials at Drury say "Libby" Hill was very active in the Theater Department. The university will hold its own memorial service in September, planting a tree outside the theater in Hill's honor. The upcoming performance season will be dedicated to her memory.

The Theater Department Chair says a scholarship fund set up in Libby’s name for future theatre students.
