Friends, teachers and loved ones say Kristen Tinsley had a signature smile they won't soon forget.
Tinsley, a 16-year-old student at Andrew Jackson High School, died Friday afternoon, less than a week after she was involved in a car accident on her way to school.
Her principal, Mary Barry, said Kristen was known for her positive energy.
“Kristen was a wonderful young lady,” Barry said about the 11th-grader. “She always walked the halls with a smile on her face. She was very happy and was extremely happy this year.”
