Randolph County Students Remember Slain Classmate

Posted: Updated:

 

Folks in Randolph County are still talking about a fatal stabbing at last Friday's football game.

Authorities said a student at Tygart's Valley High School killed another student, who was identified as Dustin White, 17.

The altercation happened outside of George Ward Elementary School, just before the football game.

Superintendent Jim Phares said White was an avid outdoorsman and that students remembered him Tuesday, as they came to school.

 

"Today, to show support for their classmate, they did wear camouflage clothing," Phares said. "A counselor spoke to them about the resources that were on site if they would need them, and a local pastor gave words of relief and prayer for the student body."

Randolph County closed its schools early on Monday because of the storm. It sent students home with information on how to get help, if needed.

 

Dustin White's funeral will be Friday morning. The student accused of killing White is in juvenile custody.

Authorities won't release his name or any information about the charges he'll face because he's a juvenile.
