The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. board honored its retiring staff members at last night's meeting.
Superintendent Dr. John Quick said the district has 23 teachers retiring and 17 support staff. The district has 1,800 employees overall, making it the county's second largest employer.
As part of the ceremonies, the board announced the start of the Shirley S. Trapp Student Support Fund. The family of Shirley Trapp, a long-time educator who is retiring, set up a $5,000 endowment through the Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation to help students in crisis.
"There will be dollars available, particularly through the counselors at all the schools, to help out folks," Quick said. "I think it is an honor to Shirley's 40+ years of being in the business, and most of that as an elementary counselor. We appreciate the family and it is a great partnership with the and in the end the student will be the beneficiary here."
Trapp has served 20 years as a counselor at Taylorsville Elementary. Among her other appointments, she also served 15 years as a special education teacher.
