Jarrett Lane

Jarett Lane, 22, a senior civil engineering student was valedictorian of his high school class in Narrows, Va., just 30 miles from Virginia Tech.

At Narrows High School, Lane played the trombone, ran track, and played football and basketball. The school put up a memorial that included pictures, musical instruments and his athletic jerseys.

"We're just kind of binding together as a family," Principal Robert Stump said.

Lane's brother-in-law Daniel Farrell called Lane fun-loving and "full of spirit."

"He had a caring heart and was a friend to everyone he met," Farrell said. "We are leaning on God's grace in these trying hours."
