Students Remember Freshman Cheerleader During Homecoming Game

- LITTLE ROCK, AR- A homecoming celebration goes on, but weighing heavily on the minds of most students is a freshman cheerleader killed last week. Adrian Broadway was shot after a prank went horribly wrong.
On Friday, students at McClellan High School are showing support for Broadway and her family. While the 15-year-old couldn't cheer with her friends on the cheer squad or accept her spot on homecoming royalty court Friday, friends say she's with them in spirit.

It began with a moment of silence. There was an empty chair, sash, and flowers that sat on center court in honor of Broadway. An overwhelming crowd rallied for the former McClellan High School cheerleader, classmate, friend and royalty member on homecoming night. But right before the games and events, a vigil took place in the football stadium.

"Adrian leaves a huge gap in our students because she took up a huge space with her personality," says Roy Vaughn, teacher.

A huge personality, bright spirit and loving nature everyone says they will miss.

"She really brought life to the squad and the squad loved her," says Vaughn.

"Adrian overall was a very energetic and loving person. She was outgoing an she loved everybody and loved to have fun at cheer practice," says members of the cheer squad.

People shared poetries, memories, prayed and sang songs in memory of the young girl who's life was cut too short.

"Even though Adrian is gone, she has not left our hearts and we will always cherish every memory we have of her," says one student.

Funeral services for Broadway will be held at the Greater Macedonia Baptist Church in Little Rock.

Broadway was shot and killed early Saturday morning. Willie Noble is charged with murder in the case. He's in jail on half a million dollars bond.
