The Center for Civic Education has created a webpage remembering 2011 Joplin High School graduate Will Norton, who lost his life in the May 22 tornado.
Will Norton was just eighteen years old when he lost his life in the tornadoes that swept through Joplin, Missouri. He recently competed with his class from Joplin High School, representing the state of Missouri in the 2011 We the People National Finals. He left an online legacy with more than 2 million views on YouTube, 6,000 followers on Twitter, and 800 friends on Facebook. He intended to attend Chapman University, where he planned to study film production.
