On Feb 26, Marion County High School held a memorial for Jeffrey Tanner Strong. Strong, 16, died Feb. 19 when he and a friend were tearing down a tree house. Strong was remembered by his church, family, and peers from MCHS. Strong’s classmates have shown their love and admiration for him in many ways since his death. Strong was an avid UK fan, and his friends honored him by wearing blue shirts in the days after his death. During the memorial service, students donned their UK gear, read memories about Strong, walked a lap around the track and released blue and white balloons.
