Obituary

Derrick Nelson (AP/Westfield Public Schools)
Derrick Nelson, a high school principal at Westfield High School in New Jersey, died on Sunday, April 7, after having undergone a procedure to donate bone marrow to a 14-year-old boy in France. Nelson, who was known for his generosity and community service, told the Westfield student newspaper before the procedure: “If it’s just a little bit of pain for a little bit of time that can give someone years of joy, it’s all worth it.”
