A tribute to the memory of King High School Jaguar Hadiya Pendleton 'Class of 2015

It is with a heavy and grieving heart we announce the passing of Hadiya Pendleton Class of 2015. It is always difficult for us to announce the passing of a Jaguar especially since our school is only 49 years old. All of our Jaguars who are gone but not forgotten have left us way too soon. But the passing of Hadiya is extremely hard and we are experiencing much difficulty even posting her transition because we are still in disbelief. You see, we interviewed Hadiya at the Chicago Football Classic in September 2012 and we could not get over her Jaguar spirit. She was bubbly, full of life and extremely proud to be a part of Krystal Elegance the majorette program supporting the Martin Luther King, Jr. Band of Chicago, IL. Hadiya just returned to Chicago last week after she accompanied the band to the 2013 President Obama Inauguration in Washington D.C.

And so how can such a bright and burning light be snuffed out so carelessly? What we do in the future to remedy such a tragedy is to be discussed at a later time. Right now we want to live in the moment and remember and cherish a spirit so ethereal, so strong and tall and illuminating she made an impression on all who came into contact with her. Our thoughts, prayers, hugs, tears, embraces are extended to her family. We loved her because she was one of our own.God speed Hadiya. We love you sweet angel.
