Students at Lebanon High School have raised more than $2,000 in memory of a slain teacher.

Natalie Perriello was murdered in her Grantham, New Hampshire home a little more than a year ago.  She was a computer science teacher at Lebanon High School.  For the second straight year, students organized a walk-a-thon against domestic violence.  This year more than 100 people turned out.

"We were all devastated last year when it happened.  It was a tragedy and we knew that we just couldn't sit around and be sad about it -- we needed to do something to help, so that is why we created the walk," said Erin McClory, a LHS senior.

"It gives you a little satisfaction that you are doing something beneficial for people that she cared a lot about -- her family, her kids.  She has four great kids," said Lincoln Crutchfield, the event's organizer.

The money will go toward the Natalie Perriello Hope Scholarship which goes to a Lebanon High student and the Perriello Children Trust Fund, which helps her family.
