One east side community is trying to raise money for a memorial for a teacher who was struck by a car on Friday in Mount Clemens.
57-year-old Angeles White from Lenox Township is a teacher at Prevail Academy in Mt. Clemens and was working as a crossing guard when she was hit on Cass Avenue. According to the Go Fund Me account, Angeles is currently on life support awaiting the final steps for her to provide the gift of life to others by donating her organs.
Angeles was an integral part of Prevail Academy and the Mt. Clemens community. In addition to working as an academic specialist/ELL teacher, she also protected children each day by working as a crossing guard on Cass Avenue. Her contagious smile and her friendly morning waves to everyone that passed by will forever be remembered. She touched the lives of countless scholars and people throughout the years.
A temporary memorial has been set up where Angeles was struck by the mini-van.
The Go-Fund Me account has currently raised one-thousand sixty-five dollars of the requested two thousand five hundred as of Monday evening.
Teachers at Prevail Academy help with various school tasks, such as assisting with the arrival of students at school, on a rotating schedule. The charter school has students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
