Crash Victim Honored At Graduation

May 17, 2014, 5:54 PM by Leland Steva

Crash Victim Honored At Graduation
Andrea Cleveland


High School Graduation is usually a joyous occasion to help send off seniors into the real world. For Jeff and Marlene Cleveland, today's graduation ceremony is bittersweet, as their daughter Andrea died in a car crash two years before she graduated.

There are 18 seniors receiving their diploma inside this high school today, but their thoughts are also with the one that's not with them today.

November 1, 2011, the Corsica teenager lost control of her car on a rural road. She later died at the hospital. The class of 2014 in Corsica remembered her today by wearing her favorite color purple as their gowns during the ceremony today. The family also presented scholarships in Andrea's name to three seniors. Marlene says the support from everyone over the last two and a half years has made the tragic loss of her daughter more bearable.

“We couldn't have gotten through it without family and friends. What they're going to do for her at graduation is so supportive and shows the love and that they haven't forgotten our Andrea,” Marlene said.

Andrea was planning on going to Dakota Wesleyan to become a nurse after high school.

We will have more from Corsica, including how Andrea was able to save lives, even after her death tonight on KELOLAND News at 10.
