Alicia was a sophomore at Bishop Noll Institute in Hammond; she loved basketball, soccer, climbing trees, and dancing. She was the girly-est tomboy you would ever meet. A loving and nurturing person – always worrying about everyone else. She was very much loved by her family and friends who will miss her dearly. Alicia lit up any room she walked into, always a vibrant and lively person with a smile on her face.
