Through standout days as a defensive end at Mississippi State and an NFL career that included winning the Super Bowl with the Bears, Tyrone Keys never forgot his sixth-grade teacher. Mary Hagan never drifted far from Keys' thoughts, even after he played for the Bucs and Chargers, retired from the league in 1988 and launched a successful nonprofit in Tampa.

Except that the racial makeup of students at her new school is basically the same because white students are leaving the public schools.
