Teacher killed in explosion honored

November 12, 2012

About a hundred people held candles and stood together outside Southwest Elementary School in Greenwood on Sunday night to remember a second-grade teacher killed in an explosion. Jennifer Longworth and her husband, John Dion Longworth, died when their home in the Richmond Hill neighborhood blew up Saturday. Many of Longworth's colleagues and students attended the vigil. The school had a two-hour delay Monday morning and is making grief counselors available for students and faculty.
