Students and faculty at Plank Junior High School held a balloon launch Monday in honor of Isabella Erickson, who passed away over the summer. 

Balloons were sold to raise money for  a memorial bench and tree that will be planted this spring in honor of Isabella at the school. Members of Isabella's family also were in attendance at the event. 

Isabella, who would have been a seventh-grader at Plank, died July 4 after the ATV she was driving left the roadway in rural Nokomis and hit a tree. Her father, John, who was also on the ATV, was hospitalized with several injuries.
