While their roles within our school system were different, each of them were "teachers." They interacted with Southern Columbia Area students on a daily basis and left a positive imprint on them in some way. Some of our retirees will continue to work as Fullington Bus employees or in the case of Mr. Stine, serve as the Head Varsity Girls Soccer coach. Whatever path our retirees follow, we wish each much success and happiness in all endeavors! Thank you retirees for your dedicated service and for making a difference in the lives of students!
