Grief counselors at JICHS after student is killed in wreck

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - Grief counselors and chaplains were made available Monday at James Island Charter High School following the death of a student over the weekend.

Seventeen year old Kylie Gillette was killed Saturday afternoon when her car was struck by a suspected drunk driver on River Road near Main Road on Johns Island.

Gillette was a rising senior at James Island Charter High, according to Principal Richard Gordon. Gordon says the school held a moment of silence at the start of the school day.

"It's been emotionally difficult today," Gordon said. "Classes were on schedule, teachers were in the classroom, the kids are learning. But then there is this over reaching theme of we've lost some students."

Twenty year old James Munn, who was charged with felony DUI in connection with the accident is a former student at the school, according to Gordon.

Gillette is the fourth student or former student to die in the last three months.

In June, 18 year old Brandon Bennett was stabbed to death at his home on Congress Street.

Eighteen year old Tristen Allen died July 12 while on a diving with his father off Folly Beach.

Last Wednesday 20 year old Matthew Gaither was one of two people who died in a plane crash in Mt. Pleasant.
