The 23-year old, who would have graduated from TCNJ  will be remembered during tonight’s commencement in Lions Stadium with an empty chair placed in the front row in her honor and according to the Hillsborough Beacon. Members of the School of the Arts and Communications, from which Paige earned her degree, will wear peach ribbons on their commencement gowns.

Peach was Paige’s favorite color.

“President Gitenstein is going to make reference to Paige in her speech. She pays tribute to any member of a class who passes away,” TCNJ spokesperson Emily Dodd told the Times of Trenton.

In Paige’s obituary those who helped in the search for her were noted. “The outpouring of the genuine human spirit of goodness would have moved her. It was as selfless as Paige was herself. People placed peach colored ribbons on their homes and businesses from our hometown to as far away as Korea and Australia. The ribbons reaffirmed the faith and the hope that she would return home safely. Prayer groups were formed all over New Jersey and the US in an attempt to collaboratively bring Paige home.”

Aiello’s body was found on Wednesday, May 8  on the rocks of the Hudson River at 158th Street in Manhattan after a month long search for her. Postitive identification was made on Thursday by the New York City Medical Examiner’s Office.
