Ottawa High closed Wednesday for funeral of teacher

Posted by wlpo on April 12, 2016

If you have a student at Ottawa High School, there are some schedule changes following the death of a popular teacher.

Classes will dismiss early Tuesday at 2:30 and school is canceled completely Wednesday to give students and staff the chance to pay respects to 38-year-old Ryan Nevins. Nevins died Friday after a battle with cancer.

Visitation is Tuesday from 3 until 7 at Crossbridge Community Church of the Nazarene in Ottawa. The funeral service is Wednesday morning at the church.

Before teaching at Ottawa High School, he was a standout football player for the Pirates in the mid-90s.
