Carlee Creswell is going to be a senior next year she says she can't picture her final year without her teachers, because they both have helped her through difficult times in her life.
"Just the fact that they're really understanding, and if your going through something and you just need to take a break, you can explain it to them and they will completely understand, and a lot of other teachers, they're not like that," says Creswell.
Even though they are leaving both men have helped create a legacy for Iowa Park.
