KNOXVILLE - The city of Knoxville is putting the finishing touches on a project honoring Zaevion Dobson.
Mayor Madeline Rogero and 26 city interns unveiled the mosaic Thursday afternoon in the 5th floor atrium in the City County Building.
The mosaic was part of a project to honor Dobson, the 15-year-old Fulton High School student who was killed in December 2015 while shielding his two friends from gunfire.
High school and college students worked on the project in his memory during their six-week internships with the city of Knoxville.
Zenobia Dobson, Zaevion's mother, said she thought the students did a great job. She hopes that people will remembers Zaevion's legacy and what he stood for when they look at the mosaic.
Dobson posthumously received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYs on July 13.
