Retiring educators saluted

Two longtime Anderson County educators were feted on their final days on the job. Director of Schools Larry Foster and Lake City Elementary School kindergarten teacher Cheryl Harris are both retiring this year after 43 years in the Anderson County school system. Foster has spent the last seven years as the director of schools after a career that began in the classroom and saw him work his way up the administrative ladder. Ms. Harris has spent her entire career teaching kindergartners at Lake City Elementary.

Both were presented with Cracker Barrel rocking chairs during a luncheon held at a Rocky Top church Tuesday following the dismissal of the last classes of the school year.
