New Ken-Arnold retiree attends state proclamation signing event
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.
