SEBRING, Fla.-- Thursday marks one year since five women were shot and killed inside a SunTrust bank in Sebring.

The city dedicated a memorial to those victims Thursday morning.

The bank was torn down following the tragedy and officials built a park on the site.

The mayor says there are five palm trees, five benches and a pentagon in the center.

"I've been so inspired by the strength through tragedy and I personally am committed to live the promise that I'll have every day with more humility, every day I will have more hope and every day I'll have more love," said Bill Rogers, Jr. with SunTrust bank.

A SunTrust representative says the shooting forever changed the company.
