TISD Mourns Loss of Former Principal

Tyler ISD is mourning the loss of a woman they call "a good friend," who dedicated her life to educating children.

Gladys Johnson passed away Saturday.

She was the former principal for Austin Elementary School.  In fact this past August the library there was named in her honor.

26 of Johnson's 47 years of education experience were with Tyler ISD.

Funeral arrangements are pending.
