GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – A group of ISD staff and students from Grand Prairie put up pink bows at Dubiski Career High School on Friday, Nov. 19, in honor of Madison Dubiski who was killed in the crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival Travis Scott concert in Houston on Nov. 5.
Madison, 23, was the granddaughter of John Dubiski, a longtime GPISD educator and namesake of John A. Dubiski Career High School.
Madison’s father, Brian, graduated from Grand Prairie High School in 1987.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Dubiski family and their many friends in Grand Prairie ISD,” the school district said in a press release.
Madison graduated from Cy-Fair High School near Houston in 2017.
Friends told the Houston Chronicle that she was the kind of person who would light up a room.
She was a varsity cheerleader and member of the National Charity League, a community service for mothers and their daughters in grades 7 through 12.
Madison and her younger brother, Ty Dubiski – a fellow Cy-Fair Bobcat, class of 2019 – attended the 2021 Astroworld Festival together.
During the performance of headliner Travis Scott, the siblings reportedly broke up.
Madison was one of 10 who died when the sold-out crowd of 50,000 stormed the main stage in early November.
