At about 2:30 a.m. on January 27, the CG community was shocked by the loss of one of its own, as Kara Haynes, 17, died unexpectedly.

Haynes was a member of Early College and a copy editor for the CG Publications staff. Her love of writing is evident in her self-written staff biography, posted on the centergovepublications.com website at https://centergrovepublications.com/staff-bios/image1/

Haynes was also founder of Center Grove’s Project Hope, a nonprofit organization with a mission to raise awareness about and prevent suicide, especially in young adults.

Counselors and members of the local clergy are available to students throughout the day in the Guidance Office.
