Holliday ISD mourns loss of substitute teacher who died in TX-79 crash

HOLLIDAY, TX (KAUZ) - One of the two women killed in a head-on collision Thursday afternoon just outside Wichita Falls was a substitute teacher for Holliday ISD.

Nancy Day, 69, has been working with the school district for nearly a decade.

Superintendent Kevin Dyes released a statement about the impact Day had there.

"Mrs. Day was a valued member of our school community as a substitute teacher for the past 9 years. She always exhibited a positive and caring attitude towards students and staff. Mrs. Day had a heart for students, teachers and loved substituting at Holliday. We considered Mrs. Day a part of our family and she will be greatly missed by the students and staff of Holliday ISD," Dyes said in a statement.

Both Day and Nancy Wagenfuehr, 51, hit head-on after Day veered into oncoming traffic on TX-79 near Edwards Way and Elliot Road.

Both women were from Wichita Falls. They were pronounced dead at the scene.
