The Hermiston School District learned of very sad news concerning a student. The Hermiston Police Department informed Superintendent of Schools Dr. Fred Maiocco of the death of Brok Palmer, a senior at Hermiston High. Brok leaves behind siblings at Desert View and Armand Larive.

The school district will provide support for staff and students during this difficult time, at Hermiston High School and Armand Larive Middle School.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends affected by this tragedy.
