Fallen Educators Memorial Dedicated In Kansas

KSAL StaffJune 13, 2014

Family members and friends of educators killed in the line of duty say a new memorial in Kansas will keep their memories alive in a world where their killers are usually better known.

Crystal McGee was among several who spoke Thursday at a dedication ceremony for the Memorial to Fallen Educators, near the National Teacher’s Hall of Fame on the Emporia State University campus.

McGee’s husband, James McGee, was principal at Goddard Junior High School when a 14-year-old student fatally shot him in 1985. She says the memorial lets families know their loved ones aren’t forgotten.

Sandy Hook Elementary School teacher Liesl Fressola read the names of her six colleagues gunned down in Newtown, Connecticut, in December 2012. Among them was her best friend.
