Friends, family and students said their final goodbyes Tuesday to a woman they say helped mold young minds.

Camelia Jackson died Friday in a car accident in Laurel County. Her funeral was Tuesday afternoon.

She taught English and Spanish, and led the academic team at South Laurel High School.

Many students say without Jackson, they would not have their diploma.

Leaders at Jackson's church have agreed to create a memorial scholarship in her name.
