MONTEVALLO, AL (WBRC) -

Friends and family of a University of Montevallo student are grieving after sophomore Rachel Pigott died in a Labor Day weekend car accident.

The school's president, Dr. John Stewart, emailed faculty about the young woman's passing.

According to Stewart's email, Pigott was an elementary-education major, a member of the Zeta Nu Chapter of Delta Gamma Fraternity, a cheerleader and a member of the women's cross country team at the school.

Zeta Nu's website lists Pigott as Director of Social Events.

On Delta Gamma's Facebook page, a post on Monday says Pigott died in a single car accident during a storm. It also says she was on her way back to the university after spending the weekend at home in Foley, Ala.

Dr. Stewart says counseling services have been made available to offer support for Rachel's friends, sisters and teammates on campus.

Pigott is survived by her parents and a brother, according to Dr. Stewart.

Funeral services are pending.
