Jefferson Middle School in Torrance came together to remember one of their own.

There was a moment of silence this morning and students wore yellow in celebration of Arvind Mahendran’s life.

Mahendran was a seventh grader at Jefferson Middle School. But just last week, he was rushed to Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center after complaining that he was not feeling well. He died later that day.

The principal says the school is assisting the family, and grief counselors will be available on campus. The cause of death has not been released.
