Remembering a special -- and brave -- teacher

ensign dedication

Members of Groveport Madison High School student council paid special tribute to their late teacher Kristine Ensign the past week. The students dedicated a new spirit rock garden at the school in her memory.
 
Ms. Ensign, an accounting teacher and softball coach, passed away in April after fighting a very strong battle with a rare form of skin cancer called Angiosarcoma. She was diagnosed in February 2010.
 
More than two years ago, GMHS students created Ensign's Entourageto help raise money for their beloved teacher's treatments. By November 2011, more than $9,000 was raised. She is deeply missed.
