Brevard alumni rally for classmate who lost daughter in Newtown shooting
Satellite Beach High School classmates raise money for Ben Wyatt
Alumni from Satellite High School have come together to help a fellow graduate whose daughter was killed in a horrific elementary school shooting in Connecticut.
Local 6 news partner Florida Today reports Ben Wyatt, who graduated from Satellite High School in 1991, lost his 6-year-old daughter Allison on Friday.
Wyatt's classmates started a Facebook campaign to offer support and raise money for his family. Florida Today reports the group raised $2,400 in the first 24 hours of the campaign.
Wyatt lived on Merritt Island and currently owns a home with his wife in Sandy Hook, Conn.
The Connecticut Post talked to Wyatt's neighbors in Sandy Hook after the shooting. They said Allison was a kind, nice and outgoing person.
Those interested in donating to the Wyatt family can do so through a PayPal account set up by the Satellite High School alumni.
