Statement Regarding Death
As a community we have had a difficult summer, and our feelings of sadness and loss extend across our campus and beyond. Our prayers are with the family and friends of Jawara Givens, as well as the entire St. Augustine High School Family.
Jawara was admired by faculty and peers alike. It is with a shared sense of shock and sadness that the St. Augustine High School Family expresses our utmost sympathy over the meaningless act of violence that resulted in the devastating loss of our bright, rising senior.
Our guidance counselors, as well as other support staff are on campus and available to meet with students and faculty, and will continue to offer support as needed. We encourage everyone in our community to check in with friends and classmates if they seem to be in need. We are here for one another, and everyone is an important piece of what makes up the Purple Knight family.
