I am deeply saddened to bring the news of a tragic incident that occurred over the weekend at our K-12 National Grade Championships in Dallas, Texas. On Saturday around 4 pm, 17 year-old Quinton Smith from Lubbock, Texas, a participant in the event, fell to his death from the tower of the host hotel. Few details are available at this time. Please join me in remembering this young man at a very difficult time.
Anyone interested in contributing to his memorial fund may do so by following the link to Lubbock Avalanche Journal website, which contains more information about Quinton and explains how to make a donation.
