South Holt Teachers Honored
At the conclusion of every school year, the South Holt Board of Education provides an Appreciation Dinner for the staff at South Holt.  It was held on Thursday, May 18th this year at the King and Proud Roadhouse. Years of service pins were presented in 5 year increments, to those teachers who have earned them.  Teacher retention is so important to the success of the students and school and this is why we recognize them.  We also know there is a teacher shortage and that our teachers are very valuable to us.  We need to keep our teachers. Teachers receiving pins this year are as follows:
