‘Love you more,’ Noah Chambers’ school locker turned into a ‘prayer locker’ in his memory

Rockingham County Schools said Noah Chambers' locker was painted with a pink heart and the saying, “Love you more.”

ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, N.C. — The memory of 11-year-old Noah Chambers is in the hearts of students and in the hallways of Rockingham County Middle School.

Students are remembering Noah who died after he was hit by a driver while crossing the street at a trunk or treat event at a church in November in a very special way.

His classmates submitted ideas for a project to honor Noah and there was an overwhelming response to memorialize his locker. The RCMS’ FCA club turned his locker into a “prayer locker.”

Rockingham County Schools said his locker was painted with a pink heart and the saying, “Love you more,” which has special meaning for Noah’s family. The school installed a prayer locker in all three grade levels. Students can even write and submit their prayer requests and memories in the lockers.

The Rockingham County School District said, “This project was truly a school-wide effort and are they are so proud to have a reminder to their students to always know how much they are loved.”

Noah's family said the following about the prayer locker:

“Our family continues to be astonished by the outpouring of love and support for Noah and his memory. We are so honored that Noah will continue to impact children’s lives each and every day through the use of the prayer locker. Noah loved God, and we can't think of no better way to honor his memory than through this - helping children in their most desperate time of need and comfort. We love you, Noah.”
