Counselors help students cope with drownings

Grief counselors were on hand Tuesday helping students and staff at North Lawndale College Prep deal with the loss of three members of their school. Students arrived for class on the Christiana and Collins campuses Tuesday morning for the first time since last week's tragedy.

Three students from the school drowned last week when they took paddleboats onto the Fox River in the middle of the night. They were on a school leadership retreat at a camp in Algonquin. Their boat sank about 75 feet from shore.

If you'd like make a contribution to the NLCP family as they go through the grieving process you may do so on their web site. Please be sure to note in the comments section that your donation is for the Student Memorial Fund.
