Alaina Joann Petty
Remained selfless until her last breath
After hours of sweating in the South Florida sun, her resolve to volunteer for Hurricane Irma victims never wavered. She dedicated her time not for the recognition, but for the knowledge that she was helping others.
She was strong-willed and determined, yet bubbly and bright. She had an enduring devotion to her JROTC class, and she wasn’t afraid to express her opinions or think outside the box. Her friends and family remember her love of crime shows, her dogs, Spanish music, and her country.
On Feb. 14, 2018, Alaina Joann Petty, 14, was shot and killed in her English class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
