A teacher's last gift to her students

Earlier this month Tammy Waddell of Georgia passed away at 58. She had been a teacher at several schools in the Forsyth County school district, and before she died, she asked for people to bring backpacks filled with school supplies to her funeral.

At one point in her 30-year teaching career, she was named Teacher of the Year, and nobody was surprised when she used her funeral as a means of giving back to her students. The backpacks will be donated to Project Connect, a school district initiative that donates school supplies to the region's neediest students.
