Laurrissa Armstrong wasn't just a victim. She was also a friend, a mother, a grandmother and a teacher. Her colleagues say she was like a mother to them. Armstrong taught Home Economics for more than a decade at Welborn Academy of Science and Technology in High Point. Of course, she taught students how to cook and sew. But, her colleagues said she also mentored almost everyone on the staff, offering words of wisdom and always putting others first. When she decided to do something for herself by ending her marriage, she lost her life.
