Three Dunwoody High School graduates who lost their lives in accidents were memorialized Oct. 30 in a tree dedication ceremony at Dunwoody High School.

October Glory maple trees were planted at the front of the school to honor the memory of Ian Davis (C’10), Alexander “Ty” Flynn (C’15), and Halle Scott (C’14).

About 150 people attended the event, which was inspired by Scott’s classmate and friend, Danielle Jones, according to Steve Fortenberry, a Dunwoody High finance teacher who spoke at the event.

The school’s Parent Teacher Student Organization took on the project, creating a space to remember the students and their impact on the lives of others, Fortenberry said, in an interview after the ceremony.

Davis died in 2014 and Scott died last spring, both in car accidents. Flynn died last spring after falling from the roof of a historic Atlanta building.

“This will be a place where their names are not forgotten,” Fortenberry said.
