Locals celebrate Retired Educators' Day

Governor Sonny Perdue has declared Nov. 4 as Retired Educators' Day for the more than 72,000 retired educators in the state of Georgia who have devoted their time, talents, love, and energy to helping our young people get the education they need to be successful, outstanding adults in our world today.

The Rockdale Retired Educators would like to thank Commissioner Roy Middlebrooks for making the same declaration for Rockdale County. He also thanked educators for their influence and inspiration in helping young people develop their talents and abilities and become responsible citizens.

Middlebrooks challenged everyone to recognize the lasting contributions of retired educators and to continue their support of educators and the education process in our schools today.
