Darkness into Light: JJC Suicide Memorial Bench Dedication

Joliet Junior College Phi Theta Kappa will host the "Darkness into Light" event is in remembrance of loved ones lost to suicide.

The honors society group will unveil and dedicate its memorial bench at this event.

The event will be held at two different times to accommodate for varying schedules: 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. There will also be a candlelight vigil at the bench after sunset, at 7 p.m.

The ceremony will begin on JJC's Main Campus in the Black Box Theatre, on the first floor of K-Building. There, they'll have a presentation and allow audience members to write the names of lost loved ones, who will be honored by the presenting students. Attendees will then walk to the memorial bench to see the formal unveiling and dedication.

Phi Theta Kappa was recently featured on WJOL 1340 to discuss the project; a recording of the radio spot can be heard here.
