SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WKRG) — Dozens of people attended a vigil at Spanish Fort High School in memory of West Miller Thursday morning.
Miller was killed in an accident over the weekend.
His classmates shared memories of Miller during the vigil. They spoke of his kindness and his infectious personality.
“No matter what the situation was he always found a way to make it happy and fun,” said one student.
“He was so caring and such an uplifting person. He helped me through so much,” said another.
One of Miller’s friends is starting the WEST movement. It stands for “when everyone stands together.” The student is working with some local churches to find a place where young people can gather in unity.
Thursday’s vigil was emotional as friends, staff, and Miller’s family remembered someone who impacted so many lives.
