Students gather to remember classmate

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Students in one Region 8 school gathered Tuesday to honor a fallen classmate.

It was the last day of school at Westside Middle School and classmates gathered together to remember Garrin Fair, who died last year.

Fair was very popular among his classmates and friends.

With summer break starting, the students want to keep his memory alive.

"You could just say anything and he would just shake it off, just make it a joke," one student said. "I would never once not see him be happy."

Fair died last November when a car struck him as he was crossing Dan Avenue.

A movie titled "Garrin's Letters" is being put together by two of his classmates to honor the young man.
