Two Kennard Deaths Shake Up Community

Kennard High School and the community is having a difficult time adjusting, after losing two of their own, during the Christmas holidays.

Seventeen-year-old Michael Cagle and 20-year-old Devin Parrish, were traveling on County Road 4625, just South of Kennard.  The accident happened back on December 19th.  DPS officials say Parrish lost control and slid into a group of trees.

Cagle died at the scene. Parrish was transported to ETMC in Tyler, where he died the day after Christmas.

Cagle was a senior this year, and Parrish, had received his diploma just two weeks prior.
