KINGSPORT — Veteran educator, former city school board member and author Barbara Goodlett died Thursday.

“We were friends for over 70 years,” Alex Anderson of Kingsport said. “I have a picture from my fourth birthday party, and she’s in it. Her father and my father were lifelong friends. She just was a powerful force personally in our community and in our church and in the school system.” 

Goodlett was an English teacher and later vice principal at Dobyns-Bennett High School. After retirement from the school system, she served on the Kingsport  Board of Education. She also wrote two books, and her articles appeared in magazines and other publications.
