In a show of support, students from Livingston High School displayed a banner honoring Joana Vazquez, an Escalon High School cheerleader who passed away unexpectedly earlier this month. They offered the banner on Friday night, Oct. 25 at a home game in Livingston hosting Escalon. Joana – a senior – will also be honored at this coming Friday night’s regular season finale, Nov. 1, which will be Senior Night at Escalon High School. District Superintendent Ron Costa said the school had its counselors, psychologists and clinician available to students on campus last week for those struggling with the teen’s sudden death and planned to have them on site again following the funeral for Joana this week. A candlelight vigil was also hosted in her honor.
