Lynn Purser, a special needs teacher at Oak Mountain Elementary teacher who lost her long battle with breast cancer last September, was honored at a special ceremony held October 28.¬† Several of¬†Purser’s family members¬†and¬†co-workers attended the special ceremony to dedicate a special needs swing and two benches for the OMES playground in her honor.¬† Many were holding pink balloons, which were released after a moment of silence to honor her¬†memory.¬† The swing and benches were purchased¬†with money donated¬†to the school in Purser’s honor following her death last year.¬† According to Principal Debby Horton, the faculty of the school selected the special needs swing and the benches as a fitting tribute.¬† Co-workers who spoke at the ceremony said Purser loved to bring her special needs students to the playground, so the new equipment was a very appropriate way to honor her.
