It may have been one of the hardest lessons these students ever learned. Their beloved Mrs. Young is gone. The kids did her proud with a song and poem. Later there was a butterfly release, a symbol of hope for the afterlife.
Finally, they dedicated a walking trail to honor their departed teacher. The trail will include historic facts about western Pennsylvania. It made their principal proud.
“Mrs. Young’s amazing and unique spirit, and the importance that she always placed on teaching and learning, will live on and live daily through this educational trail which we are dedicating today,” said Principal Marty Martynuska.MORE NEWS: 'It Could Get Worse Before It Gets Better:' Relief On Gas Prices Not On The Horizon
