Aurelia Cole, a life-long resident and beloved community leader of south Lake County

South Lake County mourns the passing of Aurelia Cole. Aurelia was a life-long resident of South Lake County. She became a teacher following in the footsteps of her parents and left a historic mark on the community by becoming the first African-American high school principal in Lake County. She taught at Clermont High School, was principal of East Ridge High School, and later served as assistant superintendent of Lake County Schools. She left a lasting imprint on so many who grieve her loss. Our thoughts and prayers are sent to the family.
