The student was transported the student to Huntsville Hospital for Women and Children.

Wednesday afternoon, Liberty Principal Shannon Brown sent an email to parents updating them on the situation.

“Morgan Williams, a 7th-grade student, experienced a medical emergency on campus and sadly passed away,” Shannon stated. “This loss has and will raise many emotions, concerns, and questions for our entire school, especially our students.

“Madison City Schools has a Crisis Intervention Team made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel at difficult times such as this. At LMS, we have counselors available for students who may need any type of assistance surrounding this loss. These individuals will be at LMS for the remainder of the week to assist. We encourage you, as parents, to also feel free to use our resources.
