University of Kentucky graduates plane crash victim postumously

Lexington, KY – UK plans to graduate one of the victims of Comair Flight 5191 postumously. Scarlett Parsley Hooker would have been scheduled to graduate this weekend had she not been on that flight. As graduate students of the University of Kentucky's College of Health Sciences receive their diplomas on Saturday, they will pause to remember and honor a classmate whose life was cut short by the Comair Flight 5191 tragedy. Kentucky Public Radio's Bryan Bartlett has the story.
