HCC Foundation Hosts Retired Teachers Luncheon
4/1/2015

 More than 70 retired teachers from northwestern Illinois attended the Highland Community College Foundation's 30th annual "Retired Teachers Luncheon" on Wednesday, March 25, on the Highland campus in Freeport.

After a musical performance by the HCC Royal Scots, several short presentations were provided followed by lunch. The program concluded with a drawing for door prizes and a request for contributions to the annual Retired Teachers scholarship.

Each year the retirees support a scholarship for a Highland student with a continuing interest in education as a vocation and who must maintain a grade point average of at least 3.0. The scholarship is rotated each year between Carroll, Jo Daviess, Ogle, and Stephenson counties. This year's recipient was Jillian Green from West Carroll High School in Carroll County who was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Retired teachers who did not receive an invitation may contact the Foundation office at 815.599.3413 or foundation@highland.edu for next year's free luncheon.
