Students and staff at a Stevens Point school are grieving, after the death of a 12 year-old student Tuesday morning. Joey Miller was a seventh grader at St. Peter’s Middle School. He collapsed and died unexpectedly.
Administrator Todd Kuckkahn said the child’s death has been hard on everyone. “We certainly request and extend our heartfelt prayers and sympathy to the family, to the friends of Joey, students, faculty and staff at St. Peter’s Middle School. We ask that people respect the privacy of those close to Joey as they deal with their loss.”
Kuckkahn could not comment on a possible cause of death. “Students and staff have been doing as good a job as you can expect people to do, in pulling together and supporting each other.” Joey Miller’s family is in the process of making his funeral arrangements.
