Nada Powell, 79, of Florien passed from this life on Friday, July 5, 2019 at Sabine Retirement & Rehab Center in Many.
Nada Louise (Wedgeworth) Powell was born on November 28, 1939 in Shreveport, LA. She touched the lives of hundreds of young students during her more than 20 years of teaching in Calcasieu and Vernon Parishes. Nada was once honored as Vernon Parish Teacher of the Year. Her primary focus was 5th grade, yet she did teach other levels as needed. She delighted in her myriad of students and many of them still attest she was the first to help them believe they could indeed become and do anything they chose.
