Prince George’s students honor Tekau Rasayon, who died after a phys ed class

Half of the student body at Surrattsville High School in Clinton wore pink Thursday to honor a 17-year-old senior who died after collapsing during physical education class on Wednesday.

Pink was Tekau Rasayon’s favorite color.


The school, which has about 850 students, started the day on Thursday with a moment of silence in memory of Rasayon.

Students were planning to walk around the high school track and release balloons to honor her in the afternoon.

School officials said Thursday that a cause of death has not been determined. Counselors were at the school to offer support.
