A social studies teacher at Freeman High School, Lara Curry, died suddenly. The school is in mourning. Sadly, Curry passed away on October 8th. On Monday morning, Principal John Marshall broke the news to the school community that she had passed away, describing her loss as “devastating” for all involved, but especially for the kids who were scheduled to take her classes in the upcoming semester.
Ben Fabian, who also teaches in the Freeman High School social studies department, referred to Curry as “one of the finest, most gifted educators I have ever known” in a Facebook post. According to Fabian, “the world has become a less warm, light, and positive space.”

This morning, I find myself at a loss for words to express the sorrow I and my coworkers feel. Among us, Lara was undoubtedly the finest. Among the best teachers one could ever expect to work with, she set a shining example. Several years ago, Lara Curry was honoured as Freeman’s teacher of the year, and she was also a graduate of the school.
Marshall assured the Freeman community in an email that he would be visiting each of Curry’s classes today and Tuesday and that the school will provide kids with counselling and other support services to help them cope with the loss. “I’ve encouraged our teachers to continue with education today for children who might welcome a distraction, but also show extraordinary flexibility for those who are having problems participating,” he wrote.
Marshall remarked that pupils might talk to counsellors in the library. The revelation caused the university to postpone the open house for its Center for Leadership, Government, and Global Economics that was slated for Monday. There will be a new date for the event to take place.
