Vice Principal Sherry Bestvater taught Marina and describes her as enthusiastic and fun loving. She adds they'll always remember Marina with her group of friends laughing and enjoying life. Principal Rick Ardies adds staff and students are feeling the loss very deeply. To cope with the death, teachers took time first thing Friday morning to talk to their students about the accident and to make sure they know about the supports available to them. They also set up counselling rooms throughout the school.
