Thousands gather in Seymour to light up the night for Nina Poeta

By Jean Falbo-Sosnovich, New Haven Register
SEYMOUR >> Nina Poeta, the Seymour High School cheerleader who inspired the community and beyond as she battled brain cancer, will forever be remembered as a shining star whose light burned out much too soon.
More than 2,000 people, armed with pink glow sticks, candles and flashlights, gathered at DeBarber Field Wednesday night for a “Walk of Light” vigil to pay tribute to the 17-year old who lost her fight Saturday to an inoperable brain tumor.
