High school will now honor Raleigh student who died

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — In a reversal, Enloe High School will now honor a would-be graduate who died at the start of her senior year after she stepped into an electrified pool while working as a lifeguard.

Friends and family of Rachel Rossoff had publicly pleaded with Wake County Schools and Enloe officials to honor her at graduation.

The school system had been working with the Rosoff family to find a suitable way to honor the teen.

Rachel Rosoff would have graduated in June.

She was 17 when she dove into a swimming pool in Raleigh in September 2016, not knowing the water was electrified. She drowned as a result.
