A New Kensington-Arnold School District retiree who also is president-elect of the Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees met with Gov. Tom Wolf earlier this month.

Judith L. Schaffer and three other PASR board members – Jean L. Young, PASR state President Gary A. Parker and Robert G. McNamara – met with Wolf for the signing of a proclamation that June 28, 2018, is PASR day in Pennsylvania.

Membership includes retired administrators, aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, counselors, maintenance staff, nurses, secretaries, teachers and associates. There are 66 chapters including one for the Alle-Kiski area.

The organization created in 1937 helped establish both the National Retired Teachers' Association in 1947 and the American Association of Retired Persons in 1958.

PASR recognizes public school educators and employees through grants and awards, and provides student scholarships.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
