Zoe Georgiou: Invicta school tribute to fatal crash girl
A Kent school has said a 16-year-old student who died when she was hit by a car while walking with her boyfriend wanted to study medicine at university.
Zoe Georgiou, a pupil at Invicta Grammar School in Maidstone, was crossing the B2163 Heath Road in Coxheath when the crash happened.
She died at the scene of the accident at about 18:00 GMT on Saturday.
Head teacher Julie Derrick said Zoe was a bright, happy and creative sixth from student with a gentle personality.
She was studying AS levels in psychology, biology, chemistry and English and had 11 GCSEs.
"She had expressed an interest in studying medicine at university and pursuing a medical career, which would have undoubtedly suited Zoe's caring nature," said Mrs Derrick.
"We are devastated to have lost such a lovely student in such tragic circumstances.
"Our thoughts are very much with Zoe's family at this very sad time."
