Sharpton’s Family Receives Diploma

Erika Megan Sharpton

It was a bittersweet night Friday for the family of Megan Sharpton, the nursing student that was murdered in July. Sharpton’s friends and classmates accepted their nursing degrees at the Highland Hills Church of Christ in Tullahoma.
Kelly Sharpton, Megan’s mother stated that Megan worked hard for this. She wanted this, she wanted to be a nurse and she was on her way before her life was stolen. Sharpton’s burned and beaten body was found in a Franklin County field July 2. Her mother, who accepted Megan’s diploma Friday, said her daughter’s loss affects more than just her family.
