The Madison High School teacher accused of having
an inappropriate relationship with a student has been fired. North East
I.S.D. leaders unanimously agreed to fire him at their meeting Monday
night. The teacher - who's in his 30s - was accused of having a
relationship with an 18-year-old student. The teacher was placed on
leave and was appealing to the Texas Education Agency but last week he
withdrew his appeal. That cleared the way for the district to fire him. A
separate investigation is under way that could result in him losing his
teaching certificate.Madison H.S. Teacher Fired Over Inappropriate Relationship

COLORADO CITY, Texas (AP) -- Hundreds are expected to attend a memorial for a Texas cheerleader whose remains were found more than two years after she disappeared.
Family, friends and supporters of 13-year-old Hailey Darlene Dunn will gather at Colorado Middle School on Sunday to bid a final farewell to the teenager who went missing in December 2010.
Dunn's remains were found March 16 near Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County, about 20 miles northwest of Dunn's hometown of Colorado City.
Authorities announced the remains were Dunn's April 26. Officials have not released a manner and cause of death. No arrests have been made.
Authorities initially named Shawn Adkins as a person of interest. He was Hailey's mother's boyfriend when the teenager disappeared. He has not been charged.
