Caroline High School students honor their classmate
Caroline High School Principal Jeff Wick said Wednesday the students at his school are finding ways to honor their classmate, Thomas Wendell Wheeler II, who died Tuesday after collapsing in gym class.
“The kids here are planning a number of things,” Wick said.
On Friday, the students will wear blue t-shirts in memory of Thomas.
He said they’ve signed a giant card, with their thoughts and wishes for his family.
