Misty Pursell worked at Hiawatha Elementary since 2015. Ms. Misty worked with many of our students in various roles as a paraprofessional. On March 9th, Misty passed away after a short illness. Misty loved her family and 4 children, ages 20, 19, 15 and 13. You can find her obituary here.
Ms. Misty was strong, as is the Hiawatha community. During this trying time, the #HiawathaStrong theme was born. You can order a #HiawathaStrong t-shirt for $12. All proceeds will go directly to the Pursell family. Checks payable to Pursell Memorial Fund.
