The 16-year-old Halston Metheny died on Wednesday night, following a wreck on I-20 frontage road near Elmdale Road. The teenager died on impact after a driver traveling westbound failed to yield the right of way.
Today, counselors were made available to those students who needed help while grieving, just one day after their classmate's death.
KTAB's LaDyrian Cole talked to friends of Metheny, who described her as a sweet spirit with power to make anyone smile.
