Alvirne High School mourns teacher's passing
"It hit us hard," said Gill Lachance, who teaches French at Alvirne. "She was one of the kindest, most gentle people I've ever met."
"Our goal today is to celebrate Barbara's life," Alvirne principal Steve Beals said.
"Her favorite activities were our big toy drive at Christmas time and the Cinderella Project," said Beals referring to the program that provides prom dresses for students in need.
Students described Boyd as a great teacher and a friend they could turn to when they needed someone to listen.
"It was a difficult week," said Beals. "The staff was unbelievable. Everyone had to grieve and teachers and students rose to the occasion."
"In all of our life's challenges, the one constant we have is community, people coming together," he said.
