The Foothill High School community is mourning the death of senior Scott Kienhofer, who died Sunday after battling cancer.
Foothill principal Sebastian Bull announced the news in a message to the Foothill community Monday, saying Kienhofer was "a beloved member of the Class of 2018" and offering condolences on behalf of the school to the teen's family.
"It is very difficult for all of us to face the loss of one of our students," Bull said, reminding students to reach out to their parents or grief-support counselors on campus if they need help during this time.
Kienhofer had been battling non-Hodgkin's T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, according to the "Scottie Strong" Twitter account set up last year to offer support for his cancer fight.
The teen's family is planning a celebration of life but details aren't available yet, Bull said.
