ECCC Mourns Student Killed in Auto Accident

Oct. 1, 2013 News Release: Services are pending for East Central Community College student Brittany Hutchinson of Forest, who was killed in automobile accident on her way to classes Monday, Sept. 30, 2013.

Hutchinson was a 19-year-old sophomore and a graduate of Scott Central High School.

ECCC President Dr. Billy Stewart said in a campus-wide e-mail he is “deeply saddened” about Hutchinson’s tragic death, and asks the EC family “to keep Brittany’s family and friends in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

EC sophomore Cahnesiya Donald of Forest remembers her friend and classmate as someone who always had a smile on her face.

“Brittany was a very sweet young lady who always spoke when you saw her,” Donald said. “You could never tell if she was having a bad day, was sad or down, because she was always smiling! She was my classmate at Scott Central and we lived on the same floor in Jackson Hall (at EC) last year. She was a friend, and I’m truly going to miss her.”
