PHS students show support for Brandon Roy

Phoenix, Ore. — Students and staff at Phoenix High School wore their support for Brandon Roy, a hospitalized student, on their sleeves on Friday. According to Brandon’s father Steven, red is the teen’s favorite color. Everyone was encouraged to wear something in that hue on the fourth.

A table is also set up in the main hallway, with pens and paper for students to write notes to Brandon. Staff at the high school say it’s encouraging to see students supporting one another in times of need.

“I think it just shows that we are such a — we have such a strong community here at Phoenix High School and that we love and support each other,” Assistant Principal Jackie Brody said. “And so we show this as our bond, and our show of support.”

18-year-old Brandon is still in the hospital Friday night, after falling at least 15 feet from the top of a building at Phoenix High School on Wednesday morning. His family says he cracked his skull, injured a lung and his spleen. However, his neurosurgeon told the family that his condition looks ‘hopeful.’
