Sun Valley High School students in Mesa are working to arrange funeral services for Marcus Reid, a teacher with no immediate family who recently died after a motorcycle accident.
"Since moving to Arizona from Illinois ten years ago, Marcus has been an incredibly committed educator on campus who was known for his generosity with his time and his dedication to the children he served," the school said, in a statement. "He had a special gift of building strong relationships with his students and designing innovative, high-interest classes. The campus has been overwhelmed by an outpouring of grief from current and former students and staff, and he will be sorely missed by all of us."
