WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — West Lafayette Junior/Senior High School is mourning the loss of a faculty member who died over the weekend.

Nick Sevigny taught eighth-grade social studies and high school psychology students.

He also coached in the boys basketball and soccer programs.

Nick had been teaching at the school for the past three years.

Superintendent Rocky Killion says Sevigny worked very hard for the sake of his students.

He loved teaching, loved the kids and loved coaching.

Killion also says he had a great impact on everything he applied himself to in the school district.

Killion says his students are really going to miss him.

"Well, the students were very connected to him. As I remind people that it's not necessarily what you know but how much you show that you care, and Nick was a very caring individual," Killion said. 

The school has asked parents of the student population to share information about Mr. Sevigny’s untimely death with their children
before classes resume on Thursday.

The school will have counselors in place for students and staff who need grief counseling throughout the next few days

Funeral services will be held in Sevigny's hometown of LaPorte, Indiana.

If weather permits, the school will look into providing transportation for students who wish to attend Sevigny's funeral this Sunday.

Further information on services will be available through the school's website once the family has made those determinations.
