Honored on retirement
Ken McLemore

The Hope Public School District community said goodbye to a number of its members with retirement recognition honors on the last day of the 2015-2016 school year. The assembled retirees represented some 200-plus years of educational experience, many having served their entire career in the HPSD. Honored by Hope Superintendent Bobby Hart was Brenda Powell, sixth grade teacher at Beryl Henry Elementary. -- Ken McLemore, Hope Public Schools
