Maria Woodson was a 2nd grade teacher at Ravenscroft for 12 years before taking her expertise to Granville County Schools to be a K-5 curriculum coach.
On the morning of November 3, 2011, Maria left Stovall-Shaw Elementary after reading with a group of 2nd grade students. While on her way to another school Maria was killed by a drunk driver. In that moment, we lost a talented educator, a loving mother and a beautiful wife who was married just four months earlier.
Our family will never recover from the loss of her
smiling face and caring hearts in our lives.
Never miss a local story.
During the upcoming holiday season, we ask that you remember to not only to never drink and drive, but the equally important advice: friends don't let friends drive while impaired. Please help keep drunk drivers off of our roads this holiday season so no family needlessly experiences this type of tragic loss.
