Educators Return For American Educators Week
Thu, 15 Nov 2007 20:00:09 GMT — More than one thousand retired Dougherty county educators returned to their former schools today. They were honored as part of American education week. The annual event honors retirees with a luncheon. One special guest at Lincoln elementary's celebration was 98-year-old Leola Caldwell, who retired from the school forty years ago. Caldwell says, "Coming back here, I had no idea I'd live to see this honey, oh goodness! It's so beautiful over here too and to see such lovely children, I had no idea this school would be way over here in the city. We were out in the country." Caldwell and others enjoyed song and dance presentations by students. Twenty-five other schools participated with similar events.
