When Tina Southwood thinks about the principal of Abraham Lincoln Elementary School in Hodgenville, she thinks about Amber W. Thurman’s smile and hugs.
Thurman, of Hodgenville, died Saturday in a car wreck.
Southwood, now a guidance counselor at Lincoln Elementary, spent her 13-year teaching career working with Thurman.
Southwood said Thurman was an amazing person who knew all the students by name
“She wasn’t just their principal,” she said. “She was their mom, their encourager.”
