Retired Fayetteville Teachers Head Back To Classroom

Posted September 3, 2002

— Some retired Fayetteville teachers are heading back to the classroom.

The Retired Senior Volunteer Program is supporting a call for retirees to volunteer in area schools. The group says retirees have what many younger people do not expertise.

"Well, seniors have something no one else has. They have experience. They have talent. They have abilities and most times, they have good common sense," said Judy Dawkins, of the Retired Senior Volunteer Program.

The project is the brainchild of Greater Fayetteville Futures. It is calling on seniors from all segments of the community to get involved in the schools.
