The memorial service being planned for Scott Turner, a longtime Scarlett math teacher who died last week after battling esophageal cancer, will take place as scheduled at 6 p.m.

District spokeswoman Liz Margolis said a notification will be sent out to the Scarlett community Tuesday afternoon.

There will be food at the memorial event and a formal program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Several Ann Arbor Public Schools students and employees are scheduled to speak.

The community will hear from a group of Turner’s former students, Scarlett social studies teacher Rob Buchholz, former Assistant Principal Bill Harris, Roberto Clemente Student Development Center Principal Ben Edmondson, current Scarlett Principal Gerald Vazquez and Superintendent Patricia Green. Turner’s mother, Sharon Turner, also plans to make a few remarks.

Some of the plans still are being finalized, organizers said. The memorial celebration will be in the school's auditorium, 3300 Lorraine St.
