Gadsden County, FL - A child killed yesterday in a car accident is being honored today at her school, St. John Elementary in Gadsden County.

Nine year old Makayla Woodward was killed in a head-on crash that occurred yesterday on SR 267, 5 miles north of Quincy, in Gadsden County.

Gadsden County School’s Spokesperson Shaia Beckwith says grief counselors are at the school today, and FCAT testing has been suspended due to the tragedy.

“This is a small school and many of the students are like brothers and sisters,” says Beckwith.

Students have made cards in memory of Makayla and a balloon release is scheduled for today at 2 pm.
