MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - An Arizona State University student who fell to her death over the weekend is being remembered in Kansas as an outstanding student at Manhattan High School.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (https://bit.ly/1gVuk9D ) police in Tempe, Ariz., are still investigating the death early Sunday of 18-year-old Naomi McClendon. Authorities there said McClendon fell from a 10th-floor balcony at a student apartment building.

McClendon was last year’s student body president at Manhattan High School, where her father directs the orchestras and her mother teaches language arts.

Manhattan High principal Greg Hoyt said Monday grief counselors were being made available.

Staff recalled McClendon as one of the high school’s top achievers. She was a member of the forensics and debate team, an editor on the school newspaper and the singer in a rock band.
