West Fargo High School students mourn deaths of 3 classmates in 3 days


Grief counselors were at West Fargo High School this week to help students cope with the loss of three of their classmates in three days, the InForum reported.

The publication reported that sophomore Tessa Miller (pictured) died Wednesday after being struck by a pick-up truck. Her parents kept he on life support in preparation of organ donation.

On Friday, the high school learned that senior Levi Schultz, 18, died after being involved in a vehicle accident at about 7:40 a.m., and 16-year-old junior Ian Alves died after an 18-month battle with two aggressive forms of cancer at about 8:45 a.m.

The Community Relations coordinator said the 1,500 students at the 10th- through 12-grade school were in "severe grieving mode" after learning of the loss of two more of their classmates.

WDAY-TV reported that a vigil to remember the teens was scheduled on Friday night.
