VHS junior passes away

From Vandegrift High School on May 9 at 4 p.m.

VHS Family,

It is with great sadness that I share the following news concerning one of our Vandegrift High School students. Today, I received notice that a Vandegrift junior classman, Christopher Whitman, passed away last night. At this time, this is all of the information that we have available to share. We will convey additional service information when it becomes available.

We know this will be a very difficult time for our students, families, faculty and staff. Counselors from Vandegrift and the LISD Student and Family Support Team will be available for students needing support dealing with this sudden loss. If your student needs any special support, please contact our school counseling office at 512-570-2347.

Please know that we will do everything we can as a school community to ensure our students and faculty receive the support necessary as we navigate this difficult time.
