Danville Community Schools Corporation is providing support to staff, as well as collecting donations after a beloved administrator died over the weekend.
Ginger Stultz was the long-time treasurer at the high school and most recently worked in the athletic department. Stultz also helped run prom every year, making her a well-known face at the school.
“She was always so positive, no matter what the scenario was. Even if it was awful, she would help you work through it and work together,” Principal P.J. Hamann said.
Stultz died in a fire at her home over the weekend. She has three kids, including two currently attending Danville High School.
The school held a moment of silence for Stultz on Monday. They’re also collecting donations, in cash and gift cards, to help her kids.
“Knowing full well that that’s just a small, small, small thing… that we can never replace their mom,” Hamann said.
Stultz was known for being a go-getter at the school. She came up with the idea to sell umbrellas with the Danville logo on them to cut down on the cost of prom tickets for kids.
“She would always go the extra mile to help people out,” Hamann said.
The Danville community is also rallying around Stultz’s family. Many people turned to Twitter, where the hashtag #onetownonefamily became a way to remember her and provide support.
A service for Stultz is scheduled for Thursday at Hazelwood Christian Church.
