Counselors reading to help grieving students

A big, beautiful smile. A willingness to stand up for others and what's right. Outgoing.

Those were among things students and administrators recalled over the weekend about a Medora High School student who died Friday night in a hit-and-run wreck in Lawrence County.

Counselors planned to gather students today to help them confront the death of sophomore Kassi Richel Lewis-Yoskovich, 16, who was a cheerleader, volleyball player and role model for the Hornets.

A classmate, freshman Noah Brown, 14, remained in Riley Hospital for Children on Sunday in Indianapolis, where he was flown for treatment for leg and hip injuries following the wreck.

School counselors will meet with students today and area clergy are on stand-by to help as needed, Superintendent Tom Judd and guidance counselor Dan Johnson said Sunday.
