Marine Lance Cpl. Alan D. Lam, 19, of Snow Camp, N.C., graduated from Southern Alamance High School in 2001, and graduated from basic training at Parris Island, S.C., in early 2002. Lam was killed April 22 when a rocket-propelled grenade launcher malfunctioned. Southern Alamance Principal Kent Byrd remembered Lam as a talented artist who worked on the school newspaper staff. "We are just so deeply saddened at the loss and just grieve for the family," Byrd said. "If you wanted to choose the kind of kid you''d like to have on your high school campus, Alan would be an example of that."
