Wendy Aycock, a beloved teacher at Albertville High School, died Monday night after she passed unexpectedly.
Aycock, 44, was the school’s library media specialist and had worked with Albertville City Schools “for decades,” Albertville Superintendent Dr. Boyd English said. He said she would be greatly missed.
“When you’ve been at a place for so long and touched as many lives as she has, it’s definitely a loss that will be felt by many,” English said.
On Tuesday, local counselors and ministers were made available for students to help cope with the loss of their teacher.
“Right now we’re just trying to come in and be there for the Aycock family and Albertville High School,” English said. “All we can do is be there for one another, support one another, and really be there for her immediate family.”
Her husband, Gary Aycock, is also a teacher at Albertville High School. He teaches agriscience.
