RECOGNIZING RETIRED TEACHERS–At their Aug. 20 meeting, the Randolph County Commissioners signed a proclamation declaring Sept. 1 as Randolph County Retired Teachers’ Day. Pictured at the signing are: seated: Commissioners Ronnie White, Marc Kiehna and David Holder; standing: retired teachers Melanie Green, Emily Lyons, Kathy Franklin, Emilie Roehrkasse and Anna Gross.
Recognizing the ongoing efforts of the county’s retired teachers and a COVID-19 update were the biggest topics of discussion at the Aug. 20 Randolph County Board of Commissioners meeting.
Each year, the commissioners approve of a proclamation declaring Sept. 1 as Randolph County Retired Teachers’ Day.
It was noted that there are around 137 retired teachers in the county. Of those retired teachers, 41 donated 9,519 hours of voluntary service during the pandemic school year 2020-2021.
“The retired teachers of Randolph County have made a difference in the lives of the deserving elderly, young students and the fine citizens of Randolph County,” the proclamation read.
