    I just learned today of Shawn’s passing. He was a former student of mine at West Henderson. I’m very sorry and my prayers are with all of his family. He was a good student and a lot of fun to have in class. He helped to make my job a lot easier as a teacher. From what I’ve read and heard from classmates, Shawn made an impact on this Earth and in his community.
