Mayfield Independent Schools grieving loss of soccer coach

Mayfield High School is grieving the loss of faculty member and Mayfield High School boys’ soccer coach Walter Mojsejenko.

The 57-year-old educator was known as Coach Mo among students at the high school. The school system released the following statement on Mojsejenko’s passing Thursday:

"Profound sadness filled the halls of Mayfield High School today at the loss of faculty member and Mayfield High School boys’ soccer coach, Walter Mojsejenko.  “Coach Mo”, 57, joined the staff in 2005. He was a not only a science teacher and soccer coach, he was a beloved friend and mentor.  He also served as sponsor of the Sportsman’s Club and the Chess and Gaming Club at Mayfield High School.

Students received the news during first period from their classroom teachers.  While counselors and clergy were on hand for students as needed, it was mainly students and staff who counseled and consoled each other.  Students filled the commons of the high school for a prayer circle as they searched for understanding. While classes met, the well-being of students and faculty took precedence and led the direction of each class. 

Coach Mo will be greatly missed. "
