A middle school counselor killed in a traffic accident was remembered this week for her ability to motivate her students to achieve excellence.
Aimee Pando, 36, of Guthrie, died Friday in an accident on State Highway 74 in Logan County. The car she was driving went left of center and collided head-on with a pickup driven by Kyle McGehee, 35, of Norman.
Also killed in the accident was Van Free, 59, of Guthrie, who was Pando’s father. He was an auto mechanic.
“When you talk with people who know Aimee, there are common themes that emerge,” Dena Rogers, Hefner Middle School principal told The Oklahoman. “She was a student advocate, always putting students first, whether as a counselor or a teacher. She believed in the power of de-escalation and had the ability to defuse any situation.”
