Emily Zinz was a senior at Wheeler High School in North Stonington. She graduated on June 19 and died three days later after a courageous battle with cancer, The Day reports.

Classmates took to social media to express condolences to the Zinz family. 

"My heart is with Wheeler faculty, class of 2014, and Zinz family. Emily was such a sassy, happy Cedar Ridge kid when we were all growing up." — Corinne Gaucher via Twitter

According to The Day, schools officials are meeting to discuss ways to assist the family.
