Friends and family of Bailey Holt release balloons to honor her memory on Tuesday night at the Calvert City Drive-In. The community gathered to celebrate Holt's life at a special showing of her favorite movie, "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," on what would have been her 16th birthday. Holt and another 15-year-old student, Preston Cope, were killed during a shooting on Jan. 23 at Marshall County High School. "We just thought, 'What would Bailey do? What would she want to do on her birthday?' and without a doubt, she was always at the drive-in," said Holt's aunt Tracy Tubbs, who helped organize the event.
