Grenada School District is mourning the loss of one of their own as a high school senior was involved in a fatal accident over the weekend.
The student, identified as Samantha Rankin, 18, was killed in a single car accident in Memphis on Sunday.
Details surrounding the accident are unclear at this time, but students were aware of Rankin’s death at the start of classes Monday morning.
“We’re struggling today,” Grenada High School Principal Jerry Williams said. “The students all got together this morning, about 300 to 400 of them were outside praying and giving testimonies before classes began.”
