Hirschi High School Releases 500 Balloons in Memory of Teacher

- Friday afternoon, students, colleagues and friends gathered to honor a long-time teacher who lost her 4-year-battle with cancer last week.

Five hundred white balloons were released Friday to remember Verinique Faust, a Hirschi French teacher.

A 12 year educator, Faust was a 2014 teacher of the year nominee, who her students say was a significant part of their school and community.

"We did not lose just a teacher of French here at Hirschi High. We lost an instructor of life," student Anthony Montoya said.

Faust is survived by her husband, Jamie, the assistant band director at Old High, and their two sons.
