They posted the following statement:
We are heartbroken to announce that our friend, mentor and boss, Dr. Linda Gilbert, passed away earlier this afternoon. Dr. Gilbert has served Murfreesboro City Schools and the community with compassion and fervor for many years. She was a dedicated mother, grandmother and educator and will be truly missed.
Dr. Gilbert received numerous awards throughout her teaching career including the Tennessee Teacher of the Year and Tennessee Superintendent of the Year. However, the awards did not define her.
