Nash-Rocky Mount Public Schools celebrated 66 retirees on June 12 during the district’s 2018 Retirement Luncheon at Rose Hill in Nashville.

The group has dedicated approximately 1,660 collective years of service to public education. Retirees enjoyed special music provided by Triple-Knot. Each retiree was honored with lunch, a gift presented by Superintendent Dr. Shelton Jefferies, and a special skit.

Board of Education Chairwoman Ann Edge gave opening remarks and welcomed the retirees and their guests. Each retiree introduced themselves and shared their years of service and location. Jefferies presented each honoree with a commemorative gift for their service.

After the special processional, Dr. Edward Hicks, Nash-Rocky Mount director for curriculum support, provided the blessing of the meal.

After lunch, a special skit presentation was made by district employees and administrators. The light-hearted skit served as a friendly reminder for the retirees to enjoy their new phase of life by always remembering to live life to the fullest.

Jefferies thanked all of the retirees for their service.

“We appreciate you and admire your dedication and commitment to your profession and our district. Although you are retiring, we look forward to having you back in our schools as volunteers,” he said.

Michelle Davis, Nash-Rocky Mount human resources generalist, was chairwoman of the event.
