LISD Copes With Loss on First Back to School

During the holidays, LISD lost a long-time educator and a high school freshman.

A car accident on December 28th took the life of Coronado freshman Skylar Futrell. Teachers say that made it a really tough day for students returning to class at Coronado High School. 

Also, Joanna Dunn taught at LISD for 25 years. She passed away just before Christmas while undergoing surgery for injuries suffered in a car accident. Dunn had been a teacher for nearly 50 years.

NewsChannel 11 spoke with her former principal at Honey Elementary who is now the principal at Arnett Elementary. He says she will truly be missed.  "Joanna was a model teacher, a very genuine, caring individual, a lot of people that knew her real well would say that she was old school in terms of her approach with children but they respected her so much and they loved her just immensely," said David Doyle, Arnett Elementary principal.

Classes at Mackenzie ended early Monday and a candlelight memorial was held to honor Joanna Dunn. A memorial fund has been set up to help Dunn's family with medical and funeral expenses. Donations can be made at any Bank of America branch.
