Young principal at elementary school dies unexpectedly

BRYANT, Ark.-- KARK - Heartbroken students headed back to school this morning but without their beloved principal
who died unexpectedly over the weekend. 

Collegeville Elementary School in Bryant, Arkansas will have extra counselors on campus
Monday to help students and staff grieve the loss of the principal Mrs. Katie Thomas. 

A spokesperson with Bryant Public Schools told us the district will try to make Monday as
ordinary as it can be for the young students after Thomas suddenly died. 

We talked with a 3rd grader at Collegeville Elementary School on Sunday. After speaking with
him it was clear that Thomas was anything but ordinary. 

J.D. Olson said, "Wherever she walked she lit it up. She was really nice and her spirit made
everybody happy."
