2019 Retired Teachers Set Sites on New Year

Article Image Alt Text

Meeting recently are members of the executive board of the Winn Parish Retired Teachers Association. Standing from left are Calling Committee chairman Pat Kent, secretary Mimi Wold and treasurer and past president Brenda Etheridge. Seated are vice president Becky Brazzell and president Tommy Bankston.

Strong attendance and membership growth are keys to success of any organization and these have been placed atop the list of goals for the Winn Parish Retired Teachers Association as they prepare for the year just beginning.

Although the first meeting for the Retired Teachers is not until Sept. 17 when NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio will speak, the executive board has already met twice to chart a course for the organization under the presidency of Tommy Bankston. Vice president is Becky Brazzell, secretary Mimi Wold, treasurer Brenda Etheridge and Calling Committee chairman Pat Kent.

The group meets monthly during the nine months of the school year. The local Retired Teachers Association has some 60 members with the average meeting attendance of 25. The board feels there are another 45 prospective members so they hope to see membership grow to a total of 90, with average meeting attendance of 50.

Article Image Alt Text

Steve Barlett

The second Kiwanis After Hours was held on July 22 nd at the Chaddy Shack. Members, new members and guests enjoyed a delicious shrimp dinner and visiting with each other.

Winn Parish School Superintendent Steve Bartlett spoke to the club. He has given his life to education and is passionate about it. He has been in the education arena for 45 years the last 19 being Superintendent of Schools. It is very unusual to have that long a tenure as Superintendent of Schools, only one other district in state has had a superintendent for that long. Mr. Bartlett said he takes his job very seriously. He appreciates the support that the Kiwanis club gives to education.

Education is alive and well in Winn Parish. There are no failing schools, no D or F schools in the parish. All of our schools are rated A, B, or C. We have outstanding students one of which scored 35 on the ACT. Most students score in the high 20s and low 30s on the ACT.
