ALBION — The Albion Board of Education observed a moment of silence at the beginning of its meeting on Monday for a retired teacher and a student who both died on June 18.

Suzanne Wells was an art teacher in the district. She was 69 when she passed away from cancer.

She worked as a teacher at Albion from 1971 until 2005.

“Mrs. Wells will be remembered for her tremendous talent and creative ability,” said board member David Sidari. “In observations, it was noted that she approached everything with optimism and enthusiasm. It was also referenced that her caring, conscientious and kind disposition endeared her with students, faculty and the greater Albion community.”

The board also observed a moment of silence for Brennan Moody, 17. Brennan was killed in a car accident 10 days before graduation.

“Brennan will be remembered by many for the soft-spoken mild manner that was his — until the music started,” Sidari said. “Brennan was a song-master, performing in chorus, the men’s select group, and numerous solo pieces during concerts, senior citizens’ day, talent shows and others. Brennan was also involved in concert band, jazz band and marching band. He will be remembered by the large audiences who enjoyed his performances in our high school drama productions.”

Sidari then asked the crowd to give Brennan one last round of applause, which they did.
