The funds will be used to purchase books for all five library branches located around the county. The books will include a label recognizing all faculty, staff and administrators who retired during the 2011-12 school year.
Each retiree received notification that a book would be donated in their honor.
The Chamber’s Education Committee also acknowledges new teachers and Teachers of the Year in each school. This is the third year that the Chamber has acknowledged retiring educators for their valuable contribution to the lives of students in Cherokee County.
