Local News

DES MOINES — A vigil was held on Friday, July 5th, at 1:00 PM in the Central Academy lobby for 19-year-old Kevin Truong. He died after sustaining injuries in Thursday morning’s deadly hit and run.

Des Moines Public Schools says Truong was a North High School 2018 graduate and took many classes at Central Academy and Campus. “He was a beloved student and good friend,” says DMPS. Kevin’s younger brother, Kalen, will be a senior this fall.

There was no set program for the vigil, and grief counselors were on hand.
