Wando High School Principal Sherry Eppelsheimer:

Our school community was hit with tragedy Tuesday night, as we lost Logan Janik, a junior at Wando High School. While we are mourning his passing, we are truly heartbroken for his family and friends.

Logan was a young man of high character; he made a positive, lasting impact on those he met. His teachers said he was a pleasure to teach and loved by all.

This is a difficult time for our school and community. We are fortunate to have the support of the Charleston County School District Crisis Team; they are working with our school counselors to help our students and staff cope with the loss of Logan.
