Campus cherishes UNC junior’s memory

UNC Junior Rachel Sylvia Thompson, 20, died Friday from complications brought on by medication she was taking for her cystic fibrosis. She had withdrawn from school this semester to receive treatment for her disease. Thompson lived a life spent cultivating a love of literature and religious studies — passions that first formed in elementary school. (Daily Tar Heel)
