Martha Green Mauldin passed away peacefully at home with her family by her side on June 4, 2019.
A long-time educator and administrator, Martha started her career teaching music and reading in Marshall, Texas, after graduating from East Texas Baptist College in 1954.
After receiving a Master of Education from the University of Southern Mississippi, she was an educational diagnostician for Longview Independent School District. She then served as principal of Spring Hill Elementary School for eighteen years.
