Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton was among the nine murdered Wednesday evening in Charleston, South Carolina by presumed gunman Dylann Storm Roof. On Thursday a memorial held for the Goose Creek High School speech therapist and girls head track and field coach packed the gym with “standing room only” seating, according to NBC affiliate WCBD reporter Lainie Fritz.
Fritz livetweeted the memorial, which included prayers, speeches from students and faculty, and group cheers in celebration of her life. Coleman-Singleton’s son Chris is a sophomore at GCHS and plays baseball. Coleman-Singleton was a single mother who leaves behind three children, according to WCBD.
