At the August 1 Countywide Meeting for all school system employees, the Appling County Retired Educators Association honored those educators who had completed their 25th year. Certificates of appreciation were presented by former ACREA President Patsy Buchannan and James Twiggs, GREA Membership Director.
The following educators received certificates: Janda Morris, Stephanie Mincey, Debra Crosby, Debra Carter, Sandra Upchurch, Cecelia Reese, Pamela Johnson, Tamara Giddens, Trudy Greenway, Scarlett Copeland, Ann Rush, Vickie Williams, Charles Davis, Ann Milton and Brenda Harvey. Certificates were based on 25 years of loyal and dedicated service in the field of education. ACREA thanks all system employees for their hard work and hopes that the 2012-2013 school year is the best ever!
ACREA will host the Area V and VI Meeting on August 23 at the Church of God Fellowship Hall, in Baxley. Approximately 100 retired educators from 17 South Georgia counties will attend.
