It is with a heavy heart that we share the loss of one of our own. Owen Valley Senior Tristan Calvin was in a single car accident last night. As a result of this accident, Tristan tragically lost his life.

Tristan was an active student at Owen Valley High School. He was a member of the Cross Country, Track, and Swimming Teams while also marching in the Patriot Band. Through these activities and daily interactions at school, Tristan positively impacted everyone around him. We plan to honor Tristan’s legacy, and we will run, swim, march, and play in his memory throughout the 2023-2024 school year.

This is an extremely sad time, and we ask that you keep all of the Calvin family in your thoughts and prayers.
