Remembering a UF student where she loved to play


Another summer weekend in North Florida has begun, and for some it is a chance for a trip to the beaches in St.Augustine. But this weekend, one group of surfers will be out in the water remembering one of its own, who died on July 11. University of Florida student Rebecca Harris died on July 11 from injuries she received when a car struck her as she rode her bicycle on June 23.   The founding president of the group, Sopie Akhiyat, told WUFT-FM’s Tom Krynski about a “paddle-out” to honor their friend, Rebecca.
