The Preston School District is losing over a hundred years of experience when four of their teachers retire at the end of this school year.
All have said they will miss their students, but added they are looking forward to being with family and grandkids.
Hali Beckstead has taught first graders of the district for 30 years.
Judy Lucia has been teaching kindergarten for 22 years in Preston.
Marsha Kaufman has taught at PJHS and also several grades in the elementary schools for 35 years.
Penny McNeel has been at Preston 17 years. She has worked in the computer lab at Oakwood Elementary for most of those years.
“The teachers will be missed by both their fellow faculty members and students. The have made a great contribution to our community,” said school superintendent Joel Wilson.
An open house was held in the Larsen-Sant Library on Tuesday from 4-5:30 p.m.
