“I have another sad story to report but it’s a heroic story. Layne Gravois was a junior engineering student who had just received a scholarship. He was in Destin on vacation with friends and two young children were drowning and so he was part of an attempted rescue crew. Sadly he lost his life in the process. Our thoughts are with his family as well.”
