Late Jenks Student To Be Honored In Rose Parade

Posted: Updated:
PASADENA, California -

Late Jenks student Lizzie Edwards will be honored in the 129th Rose Parade in Pasadena, California, on New Year's Day. 

A rose was placed on Donate Life Float in Edwards' honor, according to a Facebook page remembering Edwards.

Edwards saved multiple lives as an organ donor, according to the post. 

Edwards, 13, along with three others, were killed in July 2017 in a crash near Purcell on their way back from Turner Falls.

Edwards, Beck Kitterman, Erin Van Horn and Zachary Van Horn all died in the crash. Van Horn was driving six kids in an SUV when the vehicle crashed into the back of a semi. Three children survived the crash.
