After the anguish—audible and silent, external and internal—Aldo Leopold Charter School personnel and the parents of the three students who died in a plane crash on May 23, 2014, as well as the family of the pilot, Dr. Peter Hochla, who also died, began a long road to recovery from grief.

The first organized activity, after the first gathering the evening of the crash, was a memorial for the three students—Michael Sebastian Mahl, 16, Ella Sala Myers, 16, and Ella Jaz Kirk, 14—organized by the school.

Otero told the Beat he hadn't announced it in regular session, because some of the trustees were unaware of his decision.

A news release sent to the Beat said the Trustees thanked Otero for his years of service and for helping the hospital over the past two and a half years, especially for assisting the organization with the financial turnaround during the difficult transition in 2013 and 2014.
