Mattison Haywood

The following contains excerpts from The Los Angeles Times

Former HSU student Mattison Haywood spent the last few moments of her life with her fiancé, Michael Myvett, who was also among the crash victims.

"Her mantra was 'Love is key,' her sister, Tremonisha Haywood Watson, told the LA Times. "She was just a light. She gave energy to everyone around her."

Mattison, 25, met Michael at HSU during an art class. She later transferred to Concordia University in Irvine, Calif., where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Biology. She and Michael had become engaged to be married in December.

In 2013 Mattison enrolled at Los Angeles-based Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science with the goal of someday becoming a doctor.
