They're Back... Retired Teachers

by Abby Ellinghausen

   We all have our favorite teachers that we love and hate to see go, but do you ever wonder where they are these days?
   Are they living in Florida and playing golf, traveling the world or just around Mooresville spending time with family? Well, you can find out at the football game on Oct. 5 because they are coming back!
  Mr. Muston thought it would be a good idea to start a new tradition and have one of the football games dedicated to the retired teachers of Mooresville High School.
   “It’s something new and exciting and a great opportunity for current staff and students to connect and celebrate what all those teachers contributed to our school,” Principal Chuck Muston said.
   The teachers will be tailgating before the game and then they will be recognized during halftime.
   “Without these teachers we wouldn’t be where we are today. They are very much a part of our success and we need to give thanks to them for that,” Muston said.
   “The recognition they deserve fades and thank you is not said enough,” Assistant Principal Jennifer Perkins said.
   This game is a perfect opportunity to catch up with your former teachers that have retired and to give them the thanks and praise that they deserve. So come to the game on Oct. 5 because the teachers will probably be more excited to see you than you will be to see them.
