We are deeply saddened by the loss of our former student and Class of 2012 graduate, Petty Officer Logan Palmer, aboard the USS John S. McCain. During his time at Sangamon Valley High School, Logan often spoke about his plans after graduation and his desire to serve his country. On behalf of everyone associated with Sangamon Valley, I would like to offer our heartfelt sympathies to Logan's family and friends and the entire United States Navy during this difficult time. We will never forget his service and sacrifice, nor will we forget the continued commitment and dedication of all the brave men and women who serve in our armed forces.
Out of respect for the family, Sangamon Valley will issue no further comments.
