"we all have that one teacher who burns their way into your heart and gives you so much love and support. you hope your children will someday have the same teacher and mrs mullins happen to be just that." covington tells me mullins had been a teacher at the school for over 20 years and she not only taught students but helped them with extra curricular activities as well... "she pretty much was an all around individual when it came to our football team. she did a lot of the publicity pr thing. she was over the water girls for our football team." and while many people at the school tell me mullins left a big print in everyone's heart and soul, she left an even bigger task for her students. "she left that senior project, that's was some of the comments today from the kids do we still have to do the senior project, she was so dedicated about that senior project because what it did was it introduced students to the workforce and that have them an avenue to make sure they explored careers that were available." there have been grieving counselors, pastors and ministers for students and staff members, at this time we have no information regarding funeral arrangements but we will bring you that information as it comes available live in noxubee xavier harris wtva nine news. meanwhile...former
