A North Carolina high school has denied a family’s plea to recognize their dead daughter’s name at the school’s graduation ceremony.


The parents of Rachel Rosoff, 17, who was fatally electrocuted in a pool last September, appealed to William G. Enloe Magnet High School to recognize their daughter but were left disappointed when the school rejected their request.

In an email to sent to the girl’s mother Michelle Schwartz Rosoff, Principal Will Chavis shared that he felt that remembering Rachel would potentially cause students to ‘react in a way that would take trained professionals to support.’
