Rhodes College wants to honor slain anchorwoman

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Rhodes College officials say they are looking for ways to commemorate slain alumna and Little Rock, Ark., anchorwoman Anne Pressly.

Alumni relations director Bud Richey says administrators and campus organization have discussed establishing memorials, a scholarship endowment and supporting Pressly's favorite charities to pay tribute to her life.

Pressly, a 2004 graduate, died Saturday from injuries suffered during an attack in her Little Rock home. Her mother found her badly beaten Oct. 20, a half-hour before Pressly was due on the air for the local KATV Daybreak show. No one has been charged in the case.

Her funeral, which is open to the public, is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday at St. Andrew's Anglican Church in west Little Rock, Ark.
