People who knew Mitchell Simmons say that he would have had a bright future.
Simmons, a 17-year-old senior at Staunton River High School, died Monday, Dec. 1, after an accidental shooting. He was remembered this week for his service to others, his friendship and his hard work both on the baseball field and in the classroom.
“He wanted to go to VMI and would have been a shoe-in to get there,” said Joe Hubble, his advanced placement government teacher. “They would have loved to have him.”
