Kerri Settle Obituary, Death: Tragic Victim of Domestic Abuse, Respected Educator, and Adjunct Professor at University of South Alabama

Kerri Settle, a devoted educator and adjunct professor at the University of South Alabama College of Education and Professional Studies, has left an indelible mark on the lives of everyone she touched. Her untimely passing has sent shockwaves through the town of Spanish Fort, Alabama, and the educational community she served with dedication and passion.

Kerri’s educational journey began at John S Shaw High School, followed by a Bachelor of Science in Special Education and a Master’s Degree from the University of South Alabama. Her professional career spanned from Special Education Teacher and LEA at Murphy High School to Assistant Principal, and finally, adjunct professor at the University of South Alabama’s College of Education and Professional Studies.

Kerri’s leadership and generosity as an active board member of Education 4 Life have inspired countless lives, and her legacy of commitment and compassion will continue to inspire the community she served so selflessly.

Tragically, Kerri’s life was cut short by a horrific case of domestic abuse. Her ex-husband, Michael Settle, a 48-year-old border patrol agent, shot and killed Kerri on Sunday before ending his own life. Police Chief John Barber confirmed that the altercation occurred at Kerri’s home, where she was fatally shot in the front yard despite her efforts to flee.
