Clarksville Elementary School held a special school wide assembly on Friday, May 13 celebrating the life of Lauren Owens, a fourth grade CES student who died tragically in a car accident along with her older sister and young nephew.

Administrators, Staff and Students put together a special assembly to celebrate Lauren’s life and honor the memory of Lauren with the Owens Family.

Lauren’s Girl Scout Troop honored her by giving a special flag presentation, The CES cheerleaders celebrated Lauren with a special cheer, and the Student Council presented Lauren’s family with more than $2,000 raised from their Owens Penny War.

Lauren’s memory will live through many things at CES; a special garden planted by the Girl Scouts, a special tree planted by CES and a buddy bench in the playground donated by the CES PTO that will make sure everyone has a buddy, because Lauren was a buddy to everyone.

It truly was a special day celebrating the life of a beautiful, bubbly Lauren Owens, who is missed greatly but remembered daily.
