One year since the tragic death of University of Texas student Harrison Brown the university is holding a memorial to honor him.

Harrison's family, friends and the Longhorn community will gather at a tree that was planted in Harrison's honor.

On May 1, 2017 Harrison died after being randomly attacking during a stabbing spree on campus. Three other students were also stabbed but they survived.

The alleged suspect was arrested  and is now awaiting trial.

Since the attack a number of things have been created in Harrison's memory. UT started the Harrison Brown Memorial Fund and local scholarships are given to help Graham ISD, which is where Harrison was from, seniors attend college.

Harrison's mother also started Report For Harrison with the help of Safe Horns which is a campaign encouraging students to report crime to 9-1-1.

There will be two events at Harrison's memorial tree. At 1 p.m. a memorial is being held there and then at 8 p.m. there will be a candlelight vigil.

The tree is located at the northwest corner of 21st Street and Speedway.
