A friend of Kaely Camacho said she always made him feel welcome as a newcomer to Southwood Middle School.
The 13-year-old girl who was killed in a hit-and-run crash in southwest Miami-Dade nearly a year ago is being honored with a street naming ceremony Friday.
Kaely Camacho will have a street named after her at Southwest 162nd Street between 80th and 78th Streets in Palmetto Bay, near Camacho's former school Southwood Middle.
Saturday marks the one-year anniversary of Camacho's death in a horrific crash on Southwest 184th Street. Her father's car was struck by a Land Rover driven by Sandor Guillen, who has pleaded not guilty to charges including vehicular homicide, DUI manslaughter and leaving the scene of an accident.
Family members will hold a ceremonial balloon release Saturday at Camacho's grave site. Her older sister will also be attending prom Saturday night where she will wear a blue dress in memory of her sister, the family said.
