Candlelight Vigil Held To Remember A Permian High Teacher

Hundreds gathered tonight for a candlelight vigil to remember long time Permian High teacher, mark Lampman.
Odessa, TX (Local Big 2 News) - "When I found out he died, I just broke down," said Permian High School student Veronica Jasso.

Students, parents and teachers gathered to remember Permian High teacher, Mark lampman.

The candlelight vigil brought lots of hugs and tears.

"We truly miss him so much," said Permian High School student Dana Gonzalez.

Even former students came out to support Lampman, who many tell me, was always there for his students.

"He was somebody who was there and you want to be there for him," said former Permian High School student Ashleigh Rodriguez.

Mark Lampman taught at Permian High for seventeen years.

"He was probably my favorite teacher that I've ever had," said Rodriguez.

He was found dead from an apparent self-inflicted gun shot wound last week.
The day before he had resigned from Permian amid alligations of an inappropriate relationship with a student.

His students say the campus isn't the same.

"It's hard not to have him by my side anymore," said Jasso.

Lampman was known by many, as someone who brought a smile to his students' faces.

"He was a very funny man, he would make everybody laugh," said Gonzalez.

And it's clear from the students I talked with, his memory won't soon be forgoten.

"We all know he's watching us, all of us, and his family too," said Gonzalez.
