Ceremony to honor retired school leaders


She started as a teacher before moving into administration. Her later positions included: principal at the J.L. Buford Intermediate Center, principal at the Primary Center, and curriculum director.

Hanson said she’s pleased with the brick display. Some of the district’s schools no longer exist, so it will be beneficial to have a permanent display acknowledging these administrators, she said.

“I’m real excited that they’re doing something that will be permanent,” Hanson said. “I think it’s going to be a nice way to honor the principals of the schools and have it be something permanent they can bring their families by and reminisce about it.”

The unveiling ceremony Oct. 29 will include a brief program featuring several speakers. There will then be refreshments provided inside the District Office.

At 6 p.m., the Foundation Board will hold its regular meeting.
