Wijewardane addresses retired educators

By Opal Vickers

The local Retired Education Personnel of Mississippi met for its regular meeting in the Mathiston Public Library on Oct. 3.

Charlotte Ray gave an inspiring devotion on how there is always change except for God, who is always the same.

President Sue Cooper called the meeting to order, briefly summed up past business and introduced our speaker, Johnnie Sue Wijewardane.

Johnnie Sue has a doctoral degree in nursing and is an instructor at the Mississippi University for Women. She presented an informative program on the past, present and future of the nursing profession for area students and other areas at the university.

After discussing future program interests, we adjourned until our Dec. 5 meeting at Our Friends Place in Houston.
