Henrico field dedication

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico teacher killed in a boating crash last summer in Lancaster County was honored on Saturday.

Amanda Brady taught fifth grade at Longan Elementary and she also coached softball at Tucker High School. Brady was killed in a boating accident on the Rappahannock River in 2010.

Organizers say there was a lot of support for the dedication project, even from complete strangers.

"It's been absolutely amazing, the amount of support. Even from people who didn't have an exact strong connection to the school, but having heard the story knew what we were trying to do," said Augusta Jarvis.

Brady Field is next to Longan Elementary on Mapleview Avenue in Henrico.
