MADISONVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Michael Lowry, the director of Monroe County Schools, has died.

Assistant Director of Schools Tim Blankenship posted a statement on the district's website saying Lowry passed away on Tuesday.

The statement asked people to keep his family in their prayers “as they cope with the untimely loss of a husband and father.”

Blankenship said he will post information about funeral arrangements when they are completed.
