This year’s retirees from Boone County Schools were honored at the Boone County Board of Education meeting on May 21, 2013, by the Boone County Association of Retired School Employees (BCARSE). Jenny Light, president, and Nancy Bias, membership chair, made the presentation for the organization. Don Nelson and Gary Sumpter, co-chair Retirement Education Committee, were also present.
Past years BCARSE has recognized retirees annually as the BOE recognizes them for years of service to the county. BCARSE encourages the newly retirees to be an active part of the organization.
