Virginia Tech will replace the temporary memorials on the campus lawn with 32 engraved stones for those killed by a student gunman, officials announced Thursday.
The temporary memorials, large stones, were placed in a semicircle near the administration building by student group Hokies United immediately after the April 16 shootings by student Seung-Hui Cho. They will be offered to the families of victims, president Charles Steger said.
The new stones will be an intermediate memorial while officials look for a permanent site elsewhere on campus, Steger said.
