The Millard North High School community is mourning the sudden loss of a student-athlete and school leader. Katie Nissen’s family tells Channel 6 News she died Thursday after a short illness.
Nissen was on the school swim team, was voted by her peers as prom princess and as a Mustang Mentor, she helped incoming freshmen.
Millard Public Schools' spokeswoman Rebecca Kleeman says the district has reached out the family to see what help they can offer.
Additional details are not being released at this time.
