A deadly crash in Corpus Christi has left two Ray High School students dead and two others injured. The students were traveling to school after attending graduation rehearsal at the American Bank Center.
“Our Texan community is devastated by this loss of our graduating seniors,” said Principal Roxanne Cuevas. “Our hearts go out to all the loved ones affected by this tragedy.”
At this time, the names of all four students involved, as well as the conditions of the two injured students, are being withheld out of respect for the families’ privacy.
“We want to express our deepest condolences to the families of the two seniors we lost today,” said Superintendent Dr. Roland Hernandez. “We appreciate our community’s prayers for our district during what continues to be an incredibly challenging time for us as well as for educators across the nation.”
The district’s crisis counseling team is providing support to students and staff at Ray High School. Counselors are available districtwide as well to help students in need.
Ray’s graduation ceremony is scheduled for 2 p.m., Friday, June 3. The district said in keeping with CCISD’s tradition of honoring deceased students, chairs will be reserved in the late Texans’ honor.
