Lake Butler Rotary Club Welcomes New Teachers to the Union County School District

Annually the Lake Butler Rotary Club uses one of its weekly luncheon meetings to welcome the new teachers to the Elementary, Middle and High School and Alternative Schools. This year, on Tuesday, August 4th, the welcome was conducted in the Elementary School cafeteria.  Rotary Club President Shane Collins made the initial welcome following a delicious fried chicken meal catered by Spires IGA. Superintendent Carlton Faulk followed with his welcoming remarks and had the principals from each school introduce their new teachers. Welcome packets were presented by Rotarians Shane Collins, Garrett Milton, Jenny Reed and Carlton Faulk with the respective principals providing framed welcome certificates.
