A new Vigo County School Corporation superintendent was installed in July 2018. Special guest speaker and newly appointed superintendent, Dr. Robert Haworth, addressed the VCRTA with an informal discussion of his background and his desire for public education to succeed in Vigo County. Dr. Haworth provided his thoughts and expressed his desire to listen to retired teachers as they have an important perspective to share in shaping the future of the school corporation and to help identify opportunities in an upcoming strategic planning series of events.
The informal discussion with Superintendent Haworth was a great success. In addition to meeting the new superintendent, his designation as the program speaker encouraged a greater number of VCRTA members to attend. We hope this is a continuing trend.
VCRTA members were encouraged to sign up for bell ringing as part of our winter service project to assist the Vigo County Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign. Members were also encouraged to begin/continue documenting their volunteer hours. Volunteer hours will be collected at the December luncheon.
