The sudden death of junior Haley Bryan shocked the small school and community.
"This is a very close knit community," Principal Jeff Bell said. "Haley was a sweet young lady who will be greatly missed."
Bryan died at St. Vincent Clay Hospital of an alleged drug overdose on New Year's Day.
A candlelight vigil took place Sunday night in the auditeria of the high school in honor of Bryan, which Bell said was very emotional.
"We tried to use the vigil as a way to try to help parents, students and the community with the grieving process," he said. "We had approximately 10 clergy and grief counselors in school (Tuesday) to be here to talk with the students if they needed them."
Bryan is a former cheerleader, basketball and volleyball player. She was active in art and German clubs.
"She leaves behind a lot of people who cared about her," Bell said. "It's tough, but the community is coming together and a lot of people are helping."
Currently, two 17-year-old juveniles (one male and one female) were being held at a juvenile detention center and Jessie Sowers, 18, Bowling Green, was taken to the Clay County Justice Center.
Bell reflected on the unfortunate death, of the young student.
"You always think it'll never happen," he said. "But it has happened here."
