Foundation Academy honored one of its own Tuesday, Aug. 16, with a candlelight vigil that brought the community together in a time of mourning.
The event on Lion Field at the Tilden Campus was held to remember U.S. Army 2nd Lt. Evan Fitzgibbon, who graduated from Foundation in 2017. He was one of two soldiers killed during a Ranger School training incident Tuesday, Aug. 9.
Several people spoke during the program, including FA president Dave Buckles, former football coach Brad Lord, Pastor Keith Yarbrough and Pastor Renaut Van Der Riet. Fitzgibbon's parents, John and Cindy Fitzgibbon, also thanked the community for its compassion and support.
