Okemah Public Schools said in a statement, “The faculty, staff, and student body of Okemah Public Schools wish to extend our most heartfelt condolences to the family of OHS freshman Marina McKee. Words alone can not express the depth of our sorrow, nor are words adequate to convey our compassion and sympathy in this time of loss. Marina will be greatly missed by her friends, classmates, and teachers,” the schools added. “We ask that our community keep Marina’s family and friends close to your heart and in your prayers. May the peace and grace of God be with the McKee family in this time of mourning.”
