Mooresville High School students will return to classes after summer break Tuesday with heavy hearts.
A day before the scheduled start of the school year, 15-year-old student and Mooresville football player Gavin Sharpe died Monday from injuries he suffered when he fell from the back of a pickup truck Saturday, the Mooresville Graded School District confirmed.
“Gavin was involved in an accident during a service project on the Mooresville High School Magnolia Campus on Saturday afternoon,” the district said in a statement.
Extra counselors will be at school Tuesday to help students and staff members, MGSD said.
The district said in a statement that it will offer no more additional information on the accident.
