TORRINGTON, WY – An account has been set up to benefit the family of Torrington High School teacher Juel Afdahl, who was hospitalized following a sudden seizure at the school on Oct. 18.
According to a Facebook account, following an examination by local doctors, he was flown to a Denver hospital, where two masses were removed from his brain on Friday. He is now home with family while they wait for pathology results.
Afdahl, a Business, Technology and CRT instructor and sponsor at Torrington High School, is also a rodeo coach. His wife, Tami, is director of college relations at Eastern Wyoming College.
His son, Canton, is a student at Eastern Wyoming College, and Blake is a student at THS.
