On Monday, Guymon Public Schools released a statement following the death of a Guymon High School science teacher.

“It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Katelyn Lakin, HS Science teacher, passed away yesterday. Ms. Lakin has taught in the Guymon School system for 4 years. She was a great teacher and will be missed by her students and staff. Counseling will be available for the students and the staff at the HS.
