Savannah graduated from  Forrest County Agricultural High School just the night before.

The school is starting grief counseling support starting today.

Governor Phil Bryant made a statement on his Facebook page that read, “Another tragedy involving a young Mississippian. Please pray for her family and loved ones. And let us lift up all our graduates. Their entire lives lie ahead, hopefully full of happiness and prosperity.”
