In honor of American Education Week, retired educators from Meridian gathered for a luncheon to discuss public education.
“Our association is a part of The Retired Professionals of Mississippi and we have social educational academic and philanthropic activities that we do,” said Adrian Mosley, president.
The luncheon was put on by students in The Meridian Public-School District and retired educators are satisfied with the direction of education in the school system.
“We have a marvelous group of students here in Meridian. We have a lovely group of teachers that are willing to help these students. Education is the future,” said Willia Donald, retired educator.
Donald says retired or currently teaching, there’s always additional duties to be carried out as an educator.
“We just need to start passing it on. Reading pass it on not just computer reading. Just get your book, newspaper read,” said Donald said.
