PISCATAWAY, NJ - Last week was a tough week of loss for the Piscataway school district.

While remembering the life of PHS Coach Larry Lester who passed away last Monday, the district was shocked a few days later by the sudden passing of teacher Lilia McDermott.

“RIP, Lil. Remember you being my camp counselor back when I was a kid and then I got to be in your shoes and work alongside/for you at both aftercare and camp,” wrote TAPinto sports reporter, Chris Nalwasky in a Facebook post.
