Outpouring of emotions for Havelock High teacher

“You were a great teacher, greatly admired and always loved,” posted Lizzy Ziegler, a 2006 Havelock High graduate. “You will be missed by so many.”

“God Bless Mrs. Lawrence,” posted Demialma Bell. “She went above and beyond for her students and had such a beautiful personality. Rest in peace. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers.”

In a phone call alert sent to Havelock High parents, Principal Jeff Murphy said multiple counselors would be at the school Monday when students and staff return to classes. Some students are planning to bring flowers to the school in Lawrence-Lane’s memory.

Midterm exams that had been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday have been postponed indefinitely. The Havelock High junior varsity and varsity softball teams decided to postpone their scheduled games Friday at South Central in Greenville.

Lawrence-Lane, who was reportedly in her 30s, had worked at the school since 2002 and had most recently taught algebra 2, pre-calculus and advanced math, according to the statement from Craven County Schools.
