Memorial Held for Rutgers Student

Friends and family are remembering 18-year-old Tyler Clementi, the Rutgers University freshman who committed suicide after two fellow students streamed a live video of him on the Internet having a sexual encounter with a man.

The principal of Ridgewood High school, where Clementi was a student, called him a role model and an excellent student; someone that everyone seemed to know.

People say Clementi was shy and reserved, but found his voice through playing the violin in the school's chamber orchestra and the the town's symphony orchestra.

A former violin teacher called him an exceptionally gifted musican with a sense of humor. She remembered a day when he was asked to play at his church, and he performed while riding down the aisle on a unicycle. 

Guidance couselors were on hand to talk with students today.
