Eastern Wyoming College to host funeral for teen killed in car crash

Posted: Updated:

Eastern Wyoming College is in the process of finalizing funeral arrangements for a 19-year-old freshman who was killed in a motor-vehicle accident Friday evening.

Kaylie Haun was a member of the college's Women's Rodeo Team, where she participated in barrel racing, goat tying and breakaway roping.

"We are always deeply saddened by the passing of a student, especially knowing the potential ahead of them.  Kaylie will be greatly missed," shared EWC president Dr. Tom Armstrong.

"The EWC Rodeo program is deeply saddened at the loss of our teammate and friend Kaylie Haun," added EWC rodeo coach Jake Clark. "Kaylie was a very motivated and positive student athlete.  She had the ability to brighten any day with her smile and great attitude she always had both in and out of the arena.  She will be missed.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Haun family."

The college is on spring break this week, but counselors will be available for students this week, and the week they return to campus.

At this time, funeral arrangements are pending, but will be held at the college.
