Leslie Geraldine Sherman

Leslie Sherman, a sophomore from Springfield, Va., was studying history and international studies.

An avid traveler, Sherman was headed to Russia this summer to study.

Her grandmother, Gerry Adams, said Sherman loved reading and socializing with her "gaggle" of more than 15 cousins spread out at colleges across the country. She text-messaged one of them the evening before she died.
