KRTA wishes to express our appreciation to all retired teachers as we near the end of national teacher appreciation week. Kentucky's retired teachers remain a powerful, steady and respected presence in communities all across the commonwealth. Donating over $22 million dollars worth of school supplies, canned food, and volunteer time in their communities this past year.
In retirement, teachers are active and engaged. You are volunteers who continue to create strong communities. You lead organizations. You educate and lobby policymakers. You are protectors and fighters and your spirit was particularly visible this year, as retired teachers across Kentucky advocated for retirement benefits and education funding.
Thanks for all you have done and continue to do to make Kentucky a great place to call home.
- Tim Abrams, KRTA
