Candy Budd-Crowley, a teacher in the Washington Local School district, was killed in a snowmobile accident in Michigan Saturday evening. Crowley was the physical education teacher at Monac Elementary and she coached 7th grade girl's basketball. According to Monac principal Bill Magginis, Budd-Crowley was very popular with her students. "If I had a question about a student I would talk to her because she was talking to the kids everyday," Principal Magginis said.
Students have erected a memorial on the grounds of Monac Elementary in Budd-Crowley's honor. Students have left balloons, pictures and letters.
A candlelight vigil has been set for 6 p.m. at Monac Elementary on Wednesday and at 2 p.m. on Friday students will release balloons.
