Counselors are on hand Thursday at A&M Consolidated High School to help students deal with the loss of a classmate.
Tara Lewis, 16, was killed Wednesday in a car wreck in College Station.
Police said the car Lewis was riding in on Barron Road ran a stop sign at William D. Fitch Parkway.
The car, driven by 16-year-old Elizabeth Pfitzer, was hit by a pickup truck, driven by 31-year-old Jason Greer, according to police.
Both Pfitzer and Greer are in stable condition at the College Station Medical Center.
Teachers say they couldn't have asked for a better student than Tara, who was a junior.
"She was an excellent student. We know she had many friends and had a great personality and was the type of student that teachers loved having in their class, and they're really going to miss her," said CSISD Lead Counselor Rhonda Flasowski.
District officials say they will offer counseling support to students for as long as they need it.
"Kids are affected for a while sometimes and we want to be there throughout the whole process," said Flasowski.
