Blair, Nebraska students fight to honor dead classmate

What some Blair High School seniors thought was an easy gesture, turned out to be much more difficult. They wanted to honor their friend Trent Hill by having an open chair where he would’ve sat at graduation. Hill passed away in a tragic rollover crash.
“It was just like as stab to the heart,” said Zachary McDonald. “He played such a big part in not just our class but the upper classmen and the under classmen. He just had a good relationship with everybody.”

When the school said no to the chair, McDonald and his friend Nathan Ziemet decided to start a petition to show the support behind them.
Crystal Robinson’s son Daniel is the next student in alphabetical order after Trent; she was told by the school that if her son leaves the seat open, he would not receive his diploma.
