Lighting of the Katie Titus Tree of Life

The Katie Titus Tree of Life was lit at Binghamton High School on Wednesday morning.
The Katie Titus Tree of Life was lit at Binghamton High School on Wednesday morning. This is the 21st year of the lighting of the tree, which is named in honor of Katie who was killed in a tragic non-alcohol related car accident in her junior year at the high school. Katie was a member of Binghamton High's Students Against Destructive Decisions. SADD hosts a ceremony each year to remember Katie and to encourage people not to drive if they are impaired.

"It's a symbol of community and remembrance, the community within the high school especially, how we all help each other and how we all come here and work here as a tight knit community," said SADD president Dustin Peck.

If someone in Greater Binghamton is killed in a DWI crash this holiday season, one of the clear bulbs will be changed to red. In the past 21 years, no red lights have been put on the tree.
