writer: Casi Thedford, Adviser

Students and staff are hosting a memorial to honor Career and Technology teacher Mrs. Jennifer Holcomb Jan. 6 at 6 p.m. in the IMPAC building.

Mrs. Holcomb lost her battle with cancer Dec. 30.

Best known as the sponsor of Blue-i News and PiRaider Productions, Mrs. Holcomb also taught graphic design, animation, audio video technology, audio/video technology and communication as well as the practicum classes for all of these courses on this campus for the past two and a half years. She came to this school from Lovejoy ISD where she was the yearbook sponsor for three years. Prior to that, Mrs. Holcomb taught iPATCH, the video news program, at Wylie High School for seven years and was a SKILLS USA sponsor. She began her career in teaching at Lakeview Centennial High School in Garland ISD where she taught yearbook, journalism and English Language Arts.

Mrs. Holcomb loved to travel, jam to music, drink coffee, run marathons and make an impact in the classroom. She has two children: Dylan, a senior here at East and Faith, an eighth-grader at McMillan Junior High School.

All are invited to attend and celebrate the life of Mrs. Holcomb.

The service will be led by Mrs. Holcomb’s pastor at Gateway Community Church. Members of Out of the Blue will sing and invited guest speakers will tell about the impact she had on their lives.
