Brittanee Drexel to be honored at high school graduation ceremony

I found this article that says Brittanee Drexel, who’s been missing for over a year now, will be honored at her high school graduation ceremony on June 23. She was a junior at Gates-Chili High School in Rochester, New York when she went missing, meaning she would have graduated this year. She was enrolled in a vocational cosmetology program and also played on the soccer team.

At the graduation ceremony, Brittanee’s mom will attend and accept an honorary diploma in her stead. I think that’s a really sweet gesture made by her school and her class. I suppose they could have set up some kind of monument for her at the school or planted a tree in her honor or something, but that would seem to imply that they think she’s dead, which is by no means certain.

    That was very nice of them. Not many kids these days care so much. I hope that they find her one way or the other soon. Doesn’t look good though.

      One of my brothers was killed in a car accident on the last day of his junior year of high school. (Okay, actually he officially died a few days later but he was basically dead on impact.) His class raised the money to buy him a tombstone, in addition to the one my family got him. So he’s got two gravestones, one slightly behind the other.

        Which tombstone is in front? Can you read both?

        Just curious.

        My family’s is in front. Yes, you can read both. As I recall, the class tombstone just has his name and dates, whereas my family stone has a picture of him on the front and two sayings carved in the back.

    I don’t know if you’ve heard about this…

    There is a story that ran in my local (Louisville KY area) news about her murder. More is probably stated in “local” (i.e. Myrtle Beach) news outlets. And it sounds even worse than the “worst case scenarios” in her MP profile.
