Grayson County Retired Teachers Association (GCRTA) President Glenda Goff was recently elected Vice-President of the fourth district Kentucky Retired Teachers Association (KRTA), which represents Breckinridge, Hardin, Hart, Grayson, Green, Larue, Marion, Nelson, Taylor, and Washington counties.
A health and P.E. teacher for 33 years at Grayson County High School until she retired in 2009, Goff was nominated by a committee and was voted into office by the counties in the fourth district.
“Being president of our county helped and she’s worked hard,” said Sharon Moore, GCRTA membership chairperson. “She’s had a big impact.”
The KRTA keeps retired teachers informed on present happenings in education and their financial benefits. They also have philanthropic responsibilities such as the Grandparent Essays and scholarships for future teachers going into college.
“I’m proud I’m representing our local KRTA, I can say I’m proud to be nominated,” Goff said. “I’m looking forward to representing local retired teachers.”
As vice-president of the fourth district KRTA, Goff will be in training to possibly become the next President of the association.
“This is really more of a learning process over the next two years. They’re training me to be President,” said Goff. “I’m going to be watching and learning and helping the President and districts with our endeavors.”
The GCRTA is also proud of Goff for becoming vice-president.
“We’re really proud of the work that she’s done and the enthusiasm she has for retired teachers. She’s a good person,” said Moore.
