Campbell High School teacher's death stuns colleagues, students

CAMPBELL — The death of a popular high-school teacher today stunned students and faculty, leaving them struggling with grief.

“I’m just trying to get through the day,” said Richard Gozur, principal of Campbell Memorial High School.

It was nearly 2:30 p.m. and the school day was finished. Gozur and other central office staff members were still trying to process the news they got around 8:30 a.m. that their friend and colleague Michael “Mickey” Soroka was gone.

Soroka taught 12th-grade calculus, 11th-grade precalculus, computers, and ran the school’s Channel 19 television studio and multimedia program for grades nine through 12.

He was an assistant football coach for many years and was head football coach in 1994.
