The Chippewa Valley community mourns a beloved friend and student this week in the passing of Cassandra Kenny, a sophomore.
Kenny, 15, passed away May 15 after losing her battle with cancer.
A student of Cherokee Elementary School, Wyandotte Middle School and CVHS, Cassie is survived by her parents, sister, grandparents and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
The Big Red community's overwhelming love and support for Cassie is no more apparent than in this "Sweet 16" birthday video message, which features the voices and well wishes of more than 150 CVHS students and staff.
A moment of silence was held in Cassie's memory at the district's bimonthly board of education meeting Monday and the Chippewa Valley Education Foundation will establish a scholarship in her honor.
Visit the foundation's website for information on how to make a donation to this scholarship fund.
