Students and staff at Louisburg High School are mourning the death of a longtime teacher.
Miami County authorities say 67-year-old Glenda Beasley was killed Wednesday afternoon on Kansas 68 about one mile west of Louisburg.
Beasley had stopped her 2007 Ford Escape for a school bus that was dropping off children when a 2005 Ford F-150 truck struck her from behind.
Beasley was dead at the scene. The driver of the truck, 23-year-old Todd Brandt, of rural Osawatomie, suffered minor injuries.
Beasley was a business and computer teacher at the high school. She had been a teacher for 29 years and was planning to retire at the end of the school year.
About 200 people gathered at the school Wednesday after word of her death spread. Officials said counselors would be on hand Thursday and final exams were postponed.
