Corissa Chavez, shot in 2014 during a carjacking of the vehicle she was in, used a walker Tuesday to reach and ring the bell in the monument dedicated at the Matt Garcia Career and College Academy.
The 21-year-old Vacaville resident injured in the Sacramento County shooting was among speakers at the dedication of the “Bell of Peace & Purpose” as part of the National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
“I will walk again,” Chavez said.
The monument is dedicated to Matt Garcia, the 21-year-old Fairfield councilman killed Sept. 1, 2008; Taylor Linn Little, killed in a Modesto car crash in 2014; and Jesus Adrian Amaya, killed in a 2012 shooting in Fairfield.
