Rachael Elizabeth Hill

Rachael Hill, 18, a freshman from Glen Allen, Va., was studying biology according to her father, Guy Hill.

A 2006 graduate of Grove Avenue Christian School in Henrico County, Hill was an only child and was extraordinarily close with her family, said Clay Fogler, school administrator for Grove Avenue Christian School.

She 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," said Fogler, who knew Hill for almost four years. "Obviously, the Lord had other plans for her."
