She was so talented. I still can’t believe this is happening,” said Aramis’ sister, Thelma Mora.
Greenville ISD released the following statement:
“Aramis attended GISD schools her entire academic life, starting as a kindergartner at Crockett. She also attended Carver, Sixth Grade Center and Greenville Middle School. She was known for her sweet, calm spirit and for being an excellent student with a special interest in art and fashion design. Our prayers go out to Aramis, her family, and all those who love her. We will all miss this special young woman.”
“I know she was happy,” said Thelma. “I know she had everything she wanted, but she deserved more. She deserved to leave more. And it’s not fair.”
