EAGLE POINT, Ore. — The families of three Eagle Point High School Seniors who died in a tragic car wreck last Saturday have announced a series of joint services to be held in their memories, according to Eagle Point Superintendent Cynda Rickert.

Luciana Tellez, Gisselle Montaño and Esmeralda Nava were driving home, southbound on I-5, when a driver went the wrong way on the freeway and hit them head-on.

The services will happen as follows:

• Tuesday, May 29, 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Funeral Services at EPHS Stadium, 203 N. Platt, Eagle Point
• Wednesday, May 30, 1:00 p.m. Church Services at Shepherd of the Valley, 600 Beebe Rd., Central Point
• Wednesday, May 30, 3:00 p.m. Graveside Services at Siskiyou Memorial Park, 2100 Siskiyou Blvd., Medford

According to the District, a large part of these services will most likely be led in Spanish.

A memorial fund has been set up at Rogue Credit Union to help the families pay for the funeral and memorial costs. There will also be a fundraiser at Carl's Jr. (78 W Linn Road, Eagle Point) on Friday, May 25. According to the restaurant, all proceeds from food sales that day will be donated directly to the families of the three girls.
