It is with a heavy heart that we let you know that our counselor, Carmen Couch, peacefully passed away last night after a short battle with cancer. Carmen has been a vital part of the Hogansville community for many years. Carmen truly loved each and every one of our students and families. Her support reached well beyond the school walls. Carmen embodied the mission of not only supporting and nurturing the whole child but the whole family. She always had a calming presence, hugs to give, and a shoulder to cry on when needed. Please join us in praying for Carmen’s boys Casey and Ian, her parents Bill and Sarah, and close friend Robert Vargas. We will miss her smile. We will miss her stories. Most of all, we will miss her love.
We know that this is a difficult time for our students and community. If you need to reach one of us, please feel free to contact the school or your child’s teacher. We have counseling support available for students and families. We will provide details in the coming days about how we can support each other and Carmen's family. Thank you and we love you. Remember we are Hogansville Strong.
