    Classmates and teachers share memories, By Donato Salvatoriello Sparta — Last Saturday a 19-year-old Sparta High graduate was abruptly taken in an accident, leaving those that knew him asking many questions. Mark Inga was indeed the straw that stirred the drink in many people’s lives across Sparta; bringing happiness to those he came in contact with. The 2010 graduate of Sparta High School was a favorite among many students, past and present. “He was always smiling, energetic, and seemed to always light up the room when he came around,” said Senior Nick Deaquino. Other classmates shared similar feelings. 2011 graduate Brittany Monroe said, “He had a beautiful soul, a heart made of gold, the most motivated attitude and a smile that could brighten up the worst day.” Mariah Perez, also a senior, added, “It’s never easy having to deal with a tragic loss of a loved one. Mark was beautiful person inside and out. He’s not gone though, he just moved to a new address, Heaven.” Not only were students shocked and saddened by the tragic news, teachers were also saddened after spending four years getting to know Mark. “What else can you say; he was such a nice, well-mannered young adult that had everything to offer to this world.” Said Assistant Teacher Ruth Geuther. This week marked the beginning of a void for many Sparta students. A son, a brother, a true friend, will forever be in the hearts of many Spartans.
