Jonathan Alder mourns student


Jenna Mink, Editor

    As the school day was starting on Friday, March 4, Jonathan Alder High School and Tolles Career and Technical Center students and staff experienced the loss of student Zachary George,  a senior from Jonathan Alder who was currently enrolled in Tolles’ Welding and Fabrication Technology program.

   George was heading southbound on US 42 and tried to turn left into Tolles Career and Technical Center when he was struck by a semi heading northbound towards Plain City. George was then transported to OhioHealth Doctors Hospital in Columbus where he later died.

    Members of the Plain City community as well as JAHS and Tolles students and staff are mourning the loss of the beloved student and soccer player. A community gathering is planned for Sharon Mennonite Church on Amity Pike in Plain City tonight, March 4, at 7 pm. There will also be counselors available to students at both schools for the remainder the day.
