RAMAPO - Dozens of angry students walked out of Ramapo High School in protest Wednesday morning because the school did not honor a former student who was killed in an alleged drug-related robbery.

The roughly 50 students were upset over their school doing nothing to remember 16-year-old Savion Lewallen, of Spring Valley. He died from a stab wound suffered while he and four others allegedly tried to rob Khari Noerdlinger in Edgewater, New Jersey, Sunday night.

Among the charges against Noerdlinger is manslaughter. It is alleged that he and the victim knew each other.

Noerdlinger is the son of a former aide to the wife of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Lewallen spent most of last year in jail after attacking his ex-girlfriend while she was heading to Spring Valley High School. Even with a checkered past, students say he still deserved to be given a moment of silence at the school.

School officials declined to comment on the protest. Despite the demonstration, there is no indication that the school has any plans for a memorial.

Four other people from Rockland County, who were with Lewallen when he was killed, are also facing criminal charges.
