I have been proud of children. I have been proud of my profession. I am always proud of my wife. Today, I was extremely proud of an organization to which I belong. It was my pleasure this afternoon to present two checks totaling $1500 to a Watertown elementary teacher to help her reach her goal of improving herself! The local retired teachers association selected her as their $500 scholarship recipient. The South Dakota Retired Teachers' Association presented her with a check of $1000. Both are designed to help her become an even better teacher. What joy to look at a deserving professional and be of assistance! Our motto? To serve, not be served! But today, I was served up with a generous amount of pride! If I have to break the motto, I can think of no better way. Congratulations Teresa Remmers! Know that you, like all my readers, are loved!
