Share this post

A Gary high school teacher collapsed at work and passed away Wednesday. Thomas Powell taught at Lew Wallace, where he was once head football coach and assistant basketball coach for the Glen Park school. Several years ago Powell was let go from his coaching position after a medical issue involving his leg. The issue went to court, where reports say it was eventually determined the school corporation violated federal medical leave law by not reinstating Powell.
