To the editor:

   This past week, former students in the Rosendale-Brandon School District, Brandon High School/Laconia High School lost a friend, teacher, and coach, Karen M. Kuhn.

   I personally wanted to contact your local paper to provide some background on our Miss Kuhn.

   “Kuhn,” as we called her, was a tough educator, coach and mentor to all students.

   When we entered the halls of Laconia High School, “Kuhn” would be the first instructor you would meet as a freshmen student.

   Being a Laconia High School freshman, you not only had to deal with upper classmates, but “Kuhn.”

   As some students and instructors stated, she would put the fear of God and respect into you as a freshmen student and newbie teacher ...

   We the former students of Rosendale-Brandon School District 22 will miss you, Ms. Kuhn. You were the best!!
