WALLED LAKE (WWJ) – It’s graduation night for students at Walled Lake Western High — where a 17- year-old victim of a fatal stabbing Saturday evening went to school.

Following the tragedy, WWJ’s Kathryn Larson spoke with Walled Lake Schools Superintendent Kenneth Gutman.

“This time of year is supposed to be a time of joy for our students,” Gutman told Kathryn. “They certainly look forward to commencement, beginning their summer vacations and it’s just terrible when a tragedy like this occurs any time. I think it makes it particularly difficult at a time like this.”

Gutman also said it will be a bittersweet atmosphere during the ceremony. He says he expects it will be a tough day for students who are just wrapping up their final week of school. But, he does say that grief counselors will be on hand Monday, adding that they will be as supportive as possible and that school officials may even plan a special assembly to help their students cope.
