TCU teacher passes away

The Tri-City United School District lost one of its own Friday morning when Carol Lilla passed away.

Lilla taught Math and Computer Science at TCU High School.

She has been a teacher in the Montgomery area for 46 years, starting at Most Holy Redeemer, then Montgomery-Lonsdale and Tri-City United. She coached sports for several decades.

When she retired from coaching in 2014, Lilla said she entered teaching and coaching because she loves working with kids. She was devoted to her career and students who often saw her at all of the high school events.

In an email to parents and guardians, TCU superintendent Teri Preisler said, students and staff have been informed of the saddened news and grief counseling from both our school district and Le Sueur County has been set-up here at TCU High School.

“In difficult times like this with deep emotions and grief, it is important for our students to be with others, in particular caring supportive adults. If you determine that it is in the best interest of your child to go to your home, we support that and ask that you contact TCU High School to let us know,” Preisler said. “We will continue with school today as we want our students to have a safe place to be and with support services available. We will share more information as it becomes available.”
