Governor Brian Kemp’s Proclamation recognizing Retired Educators Day in Georgia on Nov. 3, 2019, was followed by a resolution by Mayor Keith Brady to honor the retired educators here in the city of Newnan.

The Coweta Association of Retired Educators (CARE) observed the occasion by gathering at Royal Baptist Church. Sherry Warren, president of the local unit, distributed ribbons to members attending the morning service on Nov. 3.

Rev. Steve Bullard, senior pastor of Royal Baptist, recognized the group and thanked all educators in the congregation for their commitment to the young people of Newnan and Coweta County.

In their resolutions, Governor Kemp and Mayor Brady cited the more than 130,000 retired educators who devoted their professional time and talents to public education in Georgia and continue to donate thousands of hours of volunteer service to the welfare of their respective communities across the state. They also recognized Georgia Retired Education Association (GREA) for its efforts to improve the welfare of retired educators and provide opportunities for involvement in community activities over the past 61 years.

In the state proclamation, Governor Kemp expressed the gratitude of the Citizens of Georgia for the work done by retired educators and commended them “for their time and commitment to bettering our country.”
