SHEPHERDSVILLE - You may have seen a bumper sticker that read, "If you can read this, thank a teacher."
With patience and skill we do learn to read, write and do arithmetic. But what happens when a teacher retires?
Well, in Bullitt County, they continue to quietly serve our community.
Bullitt County Retired Teachers Association members have raised thousands of dollars for the Relay for Life and given scholarships to local high school seniors.
They have logged thousands of hours (over 21,000 documented hours for the last 4 years) of community service by volunteering in educational programs in Bullitt County Schools, serving as CASA advocates, working members of the Bullitt County Women's Club and much more.
Retired teachers do not serve their community for money or glory. They do not ask for thanks.
They continue to serve their community simply because it is the right thing to do.
So, during this Retired Teacher Week, be assured that in Bullitt County and the rest of our country as well, retired teachers are at work for you and your family.
