Students at The University of Alabama honored fallen Officer Dornell Cousette with a semester long project and presented the project to Cousette's family and co-workers.

On September 16th The Cty of Tuscaloosa was shaken to it's core after Tuscaloosa Investigator Dornell Cousette was slain in the line of duty while attempting to serve a felony arrest warrant. There is no doubt that Officer Cousette left a major impact on his community.

University of Alabama Professor Chandra Clark realized just how impactful Cousette was after seeing the community come together to honor his legacy stating “I’d never seen our community act like this before.”

Professor Clark's Digital News Class spent the bulk of their semester incorporating audio elements as well as some interactive pieces that includes a map of the amazing 43-mile route to New Salem Baptist Church in Alliceville where his seven mile long procession ended.

Cousette’s fiancée, Celita McCaskill spoke on the overwhelming appreciation,  “It’s meant so much to me to like have the love and support that I’m getting from everybody, everybody."
