Fayette County Schools Say “Thanks” to Retired Educators November 1

Schools across the county will honor Fayette County's retired educators by putting messages on their marquees in recognition of Retired Educators Day on November 1.

The Fayette County Public School System is taking this opportunity to say “thank you” to all of the county’s retired teachers for their years of dedication to Fayette’s students and their continued commitment to the education profession. Although retired, these educators realize that education is the cornerstone to a successful community and some have remained involved in Fayette’s schools beyond retirement as volunteers, mentors and tutors.

Many of the county’s retired educators are members of the Fayette County Retired Educators Association. Each year the organization gives several awards to students and faculty for outstanding achievement including a scholarship for graduating seniors who plan to enter the field of education, the Middle School Academic/Outstanding Student Award for one eighth grade student at each of the county’s middle schools who demonstrates superior academic performance and community involvement, and the Outstanding Educator Award honoring a current educator for his or her exceptional service to the education profession.

Retired educators have touched and influenced the lives of generations of young people in our community and have inspired them to use their talents and abilities to the fullest, and to become responsible and contributing citizens. The Fayette County Public School System encourages the public to reach out on November 1 to retired teachers they know and offer their appreciation to these educators for their dedicated service to the community.
