Sun. 8:41pm: Friends, parents gather at school

WARREN – The death of six teenagers in a car accident early Sunday morning was met by a full parking lot of cars outside of Willard K-8 School, as the school opened its doors for a community gathering to mourn for the victims.

Students, parents and staff congregated in the building to listen to pastors and talk with counselors. Many had fond stories to share about the victims as they consoled one another outside.

Three of the victims attended Warren G. Harding High School, two attended Willard, and one was a former Harding student, according to Aaron Schwab, Warren City School’s communications coordinator.

Schwab said extra counseling will be available Monday for students, but that the school thought it was necessary to respond immediately to the situation and worked in correlation with Valley Counseling.
