Riverside students honor deceased classmate
Aaliyah Jones, Riverside High Schol
On May 11, Patrick Petry (top right) from Riverside High School died. He was 16, a sophomore. He passed away doing what he loved -- riding ATVs. On May 12, there was a lighting of candles at the school's football field (top left), where many family, friends and community members came together.
The next day, many students dressed for a special Camo Day (bottom left) to honor Patrick. One was his close friend, Antonio Troche (bottom right), whose gesture represents Patrick's hometown of Cabin Creek.
There were also guest books and a poster for students and teachers to sign (middle left). It was a day for grieving and coming together.
Patrick was part of our union, our Warrior Nation. He will be missed.
