“To try to estimate the years of service and dedication to the children of Halifax County by this group of individuals would be impossible,” said Deputy Superintendent of Schools Larry Clark at the reception for the school system’s 52 retirees Monday afternoon at Halifax County Middle School.
“But I would like to express on behalf of the board, the superintendent and the central staff and all of us associated with this school system our sincere appreciation of what you all have done for the children of this community,” Clark said. “We wish you well in your retirement, and we hope as opportunity presents itself that you will come back to see us.”
Clark read the names of those retiring from the school system, and School Board Chairman Walter Potts presented each with a token of the board’s appreciation for their years of dedicated service.
