The Atlanta Public Schools superintendent announced funeral dates and arrangements for an elementary school principal who died in her sleep last week.
Susan Crim-McClendon, 60, was the principal of Woodson Park Academy and the daughter of Alonzo Crim, Atlanta’s first African-American school superintendent. She died Wednesday, according to APS.
