BGCD is deeply saddened by the heartbreaking loss of Laura Onwundinanti as the result of a tragic auto accident outside Waco, TX. Laura, a gifted musician that recently completed her bachelor’s degree in music from Baylor University, was killed along with classmate John Stewart while traveling to perform at the International Clarinet Association meeting in Baton Rouge, LA.
Laura was a former member of Grand Prairie Boys & Girls Club where she participated in the Collegiate STEPS and SMART Girls programs. She was raised in Grand Prairie where she attended South Grand Prairie High School. Since the age of seven, music was a major influence in her life. Laura played piano for 10 years and the clarinet for seven years. She was the oldest of four girls, all of whom are members of BGCD. Laura will be missed by many.
