Students in Plaistow, NH, will be holding an event May 5 to honor former classmate and Bates College student Evan Dube, who died in Scotland last year.

PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) _ High school seniors in one New Hampshire town will be attending school on an upcoming Sunday.

The Plaistow students will be participating in a Day of Compassion on May 5 to honor Evan Dube, a 2011 graduate of Timberlane Regional High School. He died in Scotland last year.

The Eagle-Tribune reports teachers, students and community members will speak on the theme of compassion.

John Dube, Evan's father and a history teacher at Timberlane, will be the keynote speaker.

Dube was attending Bates College and was in Scotland as part of a study-abroad program. He was at a beach cookout near Lerwick in the Shetland Island when he went for a swim last May. He collapsed after returning from the water and later died.
