“A death such as this will have a significant impact on our entire school community,” stated Red Bud School District Superintendent Jonathan Tallman in an email sent out to district parents last weekend.

He was referring to the death of Lillian “Lilly” Vandeford, a junior at Red Bud High School, who had passed as a result of an accident on the evening of Aug. 27. Vandeford was a member of the school’s junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams, as well as a cheerleader.
