On Thursday, May 14 the Necedah High School community gathered with family and friends of Alek Hadley to dedicate a memorial in her honor.
A red maple tree has been planted and a brick indicating that the tree was planted in her honor will be added.
Several people spoke about Alek at the ceremony that was organized by her classmates. Helena Teumer (friend of Alek's) and Kammy Quinnell (school nurse) spoke of their memories of Alek and Alannah Daniels (Alek's friend) read a poem titled "Plant a Tree."
The high school choir, lead by Cheryl Jackson also performed the song "Wings."
Alek Hadley passed away on September 20, 2014 as a result of cystic fibrosis.
