Rachael Hill was a freshman studying biology at Virginia Tech after graduating from Grove Avenue Christian School in Henrico County. Hill, 18 and an only child, was popular and funny, had a penchant for shoes and was competitive on the volleyball court. "Rachael was a very bright, articulate, intelligent, beautiful, confident, poised young woman. She had a tremendous future in front of her," Clay Fogler, administrator for the Grove Avenue school told the AP. "Obviously, the Lord had other plans for her." Her father, Guy Hill, said the family was too distraught to talk about Hill on Tuesday, but relatives were planning to have memorial events later in the week. "We just need some time here," he tearfully told the AP.
