Bulloch County honors new school retirees
SPECIAL Bulloch County Schools' retirees gather for a group photograph at Mattie Lively Elementary School prior to the school district's annual retiree banquet.

The Bulloch County Board of Education and Bulloch County Schools hosted a retirement program on May 17 in the Mattie Lively Elementary School cafeteria to honor 59 retirees who have retired or will retire from the school district during its 2021-22 school year. 

These educators and support professionals devoted a combined total of 1,211 years of service to the children of Bulloch County.  

    Superintendent of Schools Charles Wilson commended the retirees for not only their service but their perseverance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Accompanied by family members, the retirees enjoyed a steak and shrimp dinner catered by Uncle Shug’s of Statesboro, and they each received a $100 check from the Bulloch County Foundation for Public Education.

Please join the school district in thanking these retirees for their years of service: Central office
