Teacher, coach dies in crash PDF E-mail

Aurora Public Schools lost one of its own Saturday with the tragic death of a 31-year-old elementary teacher and volleyball coach who colleagues said cared deeply about her students.
Lauren Akerson was travelling home from an evening out with three friends after midnight Friday when the Chevy Silverado 2kh they were travelling in was involved in a two-vehicle accident near York. Akerson died at the scene, and by early Saturday word had spread quickly throughout the community.

“Lauren was an outstanding teacher who will be greatly missed by everybody,” said Mark Standage, Aurora Elementary School principal. “She had such a love for teaching and learning. She really loved her students and was a natural in the classroom.”
