CHARLOTTE — A campus sensory garden was built on the UNC Charlotte campus to honor student who died in 2018 after she fell from a party bus on North Tryon Street. She was 20 years old.
Polly Rogers was studying to be a teacher for students with special needs.
Roger’s sorority and family members built the memorial for a safe, therapeutic environment for children with disabilities.
“Let me show you what we’ve done with the place,” said Tim Rogers, father.
