Students from Butler County High gathered Saturday to remember a fellow student.
"Jaclyn was just one of those students that brightened up the room when she walked in, it will just be a huge loss to our school community when we start back to school next week," says Superintendent Scott Howard.
Hundreds of students from Butler County High paid their respects to one of their own Saturday night. 17-year-old Jaclyn Daugherty passed away Thursday after what some believe was a cyber bullying incident. Friends say Jaclyn was a bright student, always smiling, and full of love. Her death has brought shock and sadness to the school, but Superintendent Scott Howard says Butler County High will be there for students.
"Our number one priority will be to be there for our students and staff and we've got a great support team and crisis support team that's been working for the last couple days and they will be on hand next week when we come back to school," says Superintendent Howard.
Howard reminded students Saturday Night his door is always open and the school is open for students throughout the year for whenever they want to talk.
"I just want them to know that I am there for them, and we've got teachers there for them, we want to make sure we have plenty of loving adults that will be there at their becking call," says Superintendent Howard.
Loving adults is what school officials hope will end bullying. Cyber bullying is a growing problem across the country. Superintendent Howard believes it's up to everyone in a child's life to stop it.
"I think in any child's life it takes a three way partnership between the school and the parents and the community to all be involved to know whats going on in any child's life," says Superintendent Howard.
Funeral arraignments for Jaclyn were held Sunday.
