Athens, Ga. - The University of Georgia Chapel bell will ring 26 times Friday, Dec. 21, at 9:30 a.m. in memory of the victims of the Dec. 14 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn.

UGA will join houses of worship and other buildings that will take part in the observance on Friday morning honoring those killed in the Newtown tragedy. UGA's support of the observance comes in the wake of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's request that those in Connecticut observe a moment of silence and houses of worship and other buildings ring their bells 26 times one week after the mass shooting at the school.

UGA students will toll the Chapel bell.
