Once each year, LaRue County Schools hold a dinner to honor their retirees and those who are retiring.
Four people totaling 109 years of service with the district will be recognized at the program at LaRue County Middle School cafeteria April 24.
Two elementary teachers, Susan Phelps and Martha Page, total 67 years teaching experience. Both were asked what they would tell a young person considering a career in teaching.
Phelps, with 33 years in the profession, said that the prospective teacher must realize that it is not a job, but rather a way of life.
