On Thursday February 14th, the Page High School Community and Williamson County lost a wonderful young man. Daniel Vaughan, 18 years old, was tragically killed in a car accident.

Daniel graduated from Page High School in May 0f 2018 and devoted lots of time and energy to the Page Football and Wrestling. He was a student at Columbia State with plans to attend University of Tennessee Knoxville to pursue a degree in Computer Science.

Daniel also was very active member in his church and served as a youth counselor. This summer he planned to serve as a youth counselor at Mountain T.O.P. which is a Christian non-profit partnership organization. Daniel believed in giving back to the community where he lived.

Daniel’s parents, Billy and Claire Ann Vaughan, have invested years in the youth of Williamson County, through teaching and volunteering in many organizations in the school and church community Including Page Football, Wrestling and Marching Band. Claire Ann was the first teacher both of my children had.

We would like to help the family during such a difficult time by taking the burden of medical expenses and burial costs off of their shoulders. All money raised will be given directly to Billy and Claire Vaughan.
