The Lithonia school has named its library the Kameron Michael Dunmore Media Center in honor of the second-grader, who died after being hit by an SUV in the crosswalk outside his school on Feb. 2.
Juanita Letcher, Princeton’s principal made the announcement at Kameron’s funeral service on Feb. 7. More than 300 friends, classmates and county officials attended the funeral service held at Beulah Baptist Church.
During the service, Kameron was remembered as a well-liked child who had a fascination for nature and reading. His classmates gave a single yellow rose to his mother, Karen Dunmore, and sister, Kiara.
Police spokeswoman Mekka Parish said detectives are still investigating the accident and the SUV driver, Shirley Ogilvie, has not been charged in the case. Ogilvie faces charges ranging from vehicular homicide to failure to yield for a pedestrian crosswalk.
Kameron was interred at Hillandale Memorial Gardens in Lithonia. His father, Michael Dunmore, released two doves in his memory on the banks of a nearby pond.
