Moore County Education Retirees Wrap up 2016


As our local NCRSP unit gathered at Table on the Green for our end-of-year meeting, President Sandi Keyser and VB Catherine Sigmon-Mitchell go over details of the agenda.


You can always count on Sandi to come up with some
high appeal door prizes and recognitions for her 
valuable team of helpers.


In our pre-meeting mingle, we greet our guest speakers.
Dr. Terry Mitchell is our outgoing state president.
Joan Bass is our incoming president for 2016-2018.


Our business meeting included final committee reports.
Vivian Kelly led in a meaningful memorial service.
Sadie Small reported that our scholarship is not yet
awarded but a candidate is forthcoming.

Dr. Mitchell and Joan Bass both spoke fervently of
the ongoing crisis in North Carolina education.  It goes
far beyond educator salaries and benefits; it is about a
concerted attack on the very fabric of public education
and an agenda which is starving a once-vibrant system.

Members were urged to stay informed and to become
more involved as advocates, for the good of children,
families, and educational professionals, all of whom 
are suffering under present policies.

A top priority is to elect Roy Cooper, Josh Stein, and
Dan Blue III as governor, attorney general, and 
treasurer, respectively.

If you are not yet a member of Moore County's NCRSP,
make plans to get involved in the fall.  We'll be looking for you!

Moore County's Retired School Personnel wrap up the year in style

Moore County's local unit of NCRSP (NC Retired School Personnel) will wrap up a year of positive and informative meetings with our spring meal at Table on the Green on Midland Road.  The meeting will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday,
April 12.  Lunch will follow our business session, which will include an update on this year's scholarship process. President Sandi Keyser and her able team will show you in a few short minutes how NCRSP enriches your retirement experience (Sorry- this is NOT a get-rich-quick scheme-- we're EDUCATORS!)


All retired folks who worked in any education-related position are welcome to join our group.  As we have observed over the years, it's no fun being a Lone Ranger as a retiree.  As a group, it's easier to stay informed on issues that affect us all, whether it's benefits, educational issues, or changes that the legislature proposes.  If you've considered joining before but haven't taken the plunge, join us for this meeting.  We'll bring you up to speed and you'll be ready to enjoy full participation next fall.

We would love to see YOU there!

Now is a good time to put our February 16 meeting on your calendar (this is a change of date).  Our speaker will be Superintendent Dr. Bob Grimesey.

Let us all be mindful of our valuable role as advocates for the schools, children, and our communities.  Attending these meetings, sharing with one another, and staying informed is a crucial part of that role.  See you there!

Moore NCRSP Meeting Planned for November 10



Moore County's local unit of NCRSP will have its next meeting on November 10, 2015 at 10:00 at the Moore County Schools office in Carthage.

 Our program will be presented by the Moore County Sheriff's Department: "Refuse to Be a Victim." The program will cover scams, personal safety, property safety, security issues, etc.  Helpful materials will be available.

Since this is our last meeting before Christmas, you may bring in volunteer sheets if you have them prepared.  In addition to committee reports, we can discuss the impact of actions in the recent legislative session, plus issues that are on the horizon for the coming year.  As retired educators, we are living in times that require us to be vigilant, not only to protect our own benefits and rights, but as guardians of a profession under fire.  Schools, parents, and children need and deserve the support and wisdom our association has to offer.  Don't be afraid to speak up on the burning issues of our day.

February 10 meeting for Moore's Retired Educators

The next meeting of Moore County's NCRSP will be in the MCS Board Room at 10:00 Tuesday, February 10.

Attendees will hear updates on a variety of issues impacting our retired educators.  Since the legislature is now in session and the governor has just delivered his State of the State message, the next few months will be crucial in seeing how high a priority the education of our young people is, and how much the state values both public schools and educators.

A few items that will be on the agenda:

  • Information on a Membership Development Survey
  • Voting on NEA-R delegates
  • Information for those attending state convention
Much more will be discussed and these meetings are a great avenue for both sharing and learning pertinent facts on a wide range of issues.  Plan now to attend.

BEEN THERE, DONE THAT!
