March 09, 2018


Over 500 people show up for candlelight vigil to remember Michael Ziegler


It's been a very tough week for the Niagara-Wheatfield community.

On Wednesday, students, faculty, friends and family received tragic news that Michael Ziegler; a student at Niagara-Wheatfield High School and a member of the Falcons football, wrestling and lacrosse teams, tragically passed away.

On Friday night, with bitter temperatures and blowing snow in the forecast, the community showed their true colors and came out to Terry Harvey Field, home of the Falcons football team, to pay their respects and remember the life of Ziegler with a candlelight vigil.

In all, an estimated 500+ people showed up to the remembrance. People from N-W, Niagara Falls, Grand Island, Starpoint and more were all in attendance for an emotional ceremony.
