9-20-05 - It was the first day back for Dickson High School students after losing one of their own in a car accident Friday night.
17-year-old Jordan Page was a cheerleader who was driving to Friday night's game when she was hit head on on Highway 199.
The game was called off at halftime.
The district is doing everything they can to help students deal with the situation. For the next week, Dickson High won't be so much a place of learning but rather a place where the students can come and be together, lean on each other and grieve.
Counselors, teachers and religious leaders stood in the hallways of the high school Monday intercepting anyone who needed to talk.
The senior class even decided to create goodbye boxes to help with their grief. They will be placed all around the school and anyone who feels like writing Jordan a letter can do so.
"We are not taking grades in classes or testing we aren't going to expect too much from them we are going to introduce anything new this week while they are dealing with all of this," Principal Mike Martin said.
There are still a lot of unanswered questions as to how this accident happened. The Dickson Police Department hopes to answer those questions Monday night when they get the reconstruction accident report back.
Services for Jordan Page will be held at 2pm on Tuesday at the Crystal Rock Cathedral on 12th Street Northwest in Ardmore. Burial will follow at the Hillcrest Memorial Park also in Ardmore.
