The Hawkins County Board of Education honored its 30-member Class of 2022 retirees during the June 16 school board meeting.
Many of the retirees were able to attend the meeting in person.
They were called before the board by personnel director Teresa Drinnon who also announced their years of service which ranged from 5 to 47.
Retirees also received a gift from Director of Schools Matt Hixson, and those who couldn’t attend in person will receive their gift later.
“We want to recognize them and honor them for the years of service that they have offered Hawkins County Schools,” Drinnon said. “I personally know many of these folks and have worked right along side with them. We just want to thank you for your service.”
