ALTON, Ill. (KMOX) – Students and faculty at Alton High School are mourning the death of a senior class member who was struck by a car in late August.

The Alton School District activated its crisis response team to help in the grieving process.

A candlelight vigil will be held Sunday night outside the Amtrak train station in Alton at 7:45 pm.
