Retired teachers hosted by Hollister Schools

The Tri-Lakes Chapter of the Missouri Retired Teachers and Public School Personnel recently held their monthly meeting in Hollister.


The group was welcomed by Hollister Superintendent Dr. Brian Wilson, who shared information about happenings within the Hollister School District. Wilson explained how funds from the recently passed bond issue will be used in updating the school's campus. He discussed updating the campus' FEMA Shelter, implementing a new agricultural Farm-to-Table Program, and the creation of an activity center, which will be available for use by some area organizations.   


Said chapter member Mary Lynne Grimes, "We always enjoy meeting with area administrators and hearing about what's new in the districts where we once taught."


The Tri-Lakes Missouri Retired Teachers and Public School Personnel Association is open to any area resident who is a certified or non-certified education retiree. The Tri-Lakes group is the local chapter of the Missouri Retired Teachers Association. One of the goals of the organization is tracking state and national education legislation, and communicating with area legislators on current bills regarding public education. The group's July meeting is slated to include a candidates' forum for those running in the upcoming election.  


The organization meets the second Tuesday of each month, generally at the Library Center of the Ozarks (formerly the Taneyhills LIbrary). The Retired Teachers will meet on Tuesday, May 14, at 10 a.m. at the Library Center of the Ozarks. On May 28, the chapter meets at 5 p.m. at Stockstill Park for Pizza in the Park, and the June 11 meeting is set for 10 a.m. at the Butterfly Palace, and will include lunch and a tour.


Area education retirees are invited to attend any of the above events. For more information contact Ginger Witty at
