First day back for Broadwater High School after students death

Posted: Updated:

Classes are back to normal today at Broadwater High School just four days after the tragic death of Senior football player, Dakota Kimbrough. School administration is describing it as very quiet and somber day.

"They are very aware of what has happened, and still very sad about that, but some normalcy is returning for the kids." says Broadwater counselor Jill Flynn.

Memorials are growing on the field and off, students at Broadwater High School are remembering Dakota Kimbrough who was killed in a rollover accident last Friday afternoon just hours after the homecoming parade. The Homecoming football game and dance were canceled among other events over the weekend due to his sudden and unexpected death. A vigil was held instead on the football field Friday night. School administrators are saying the process to get back to normal will not be easy.

"It will be a long process because grief lasts weeks, months, so some show it outwardly some keep it more inside, and we just have to be attentive to that."

Its only four days after the accident and school is back in session with normal schedule, although this Wednesday school will be cut short to prepare for Dakota's funeral service that will be held in the school gymnasium.

"The funeral service will be held at the school on Wednesday at four o'clock. We will be holding an abbreviated school schedule on Wednesday so that the buses can run and get students home and the school can be cleared out. So that gymnasium can be set up for the services and then that will be held in the new gym at the school."

Not only are people remembering Dakota on campus, but they are also taking it to social media. A Facebook page has popped up in remembrance of Dakota (R.I.P. Dakota Kimbrough), and coming from a high school with only around 200 students the page already has over 5,000 followers and just keeps growing from there.
