SOUTHINGTON, CT (WFSB) -

Students and staff are remembering a teacher in Southington who passed away on Tuesday night.

Joe Cipollini taught for many years at Southington High School, and most recently at Kennedy Middle School.

Cipollini, also known as “Mr. Cip,” was also part of the Project Discover team, which gives students opportunities to participate in leadership activities, mentor programs, and help them choose careers or college majors.

Kennedy Middle School has mental health workers available to students and staff for the next several days.
