Special event for educators

Wednesday evening, May 7, was certainly a special one for members of the Vigo County School Corp. community. The Vigo County Education Foundation, along with title sponsors NBC-2, Kelly Educational Staffing, Terre Haute Savings Bank, Union Hospital Health Group and Indiana American Water Co. hosted the 28th annual “Excellence in Education” banquet at Providence Hall on the beautiful Saint Mary-of-the-Woods campus.

The purpose of the event was to recognize and thank 33 of the best educators in the Vigo County School Corp. for the excellent work they do. Attendees at the banquet included the award winners, their principals, their families and teachers from their school families and numbered more than 510 people.

The Board of Directors of the Vigo County Education Foundation would like to thank those title sponsors, as well as table sponsors, ISU’s Bayh College of Education, Rose-Hulman Homework Hotline, Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Spence Banks, Sycamore Insurance Associates and Tribune-Star Publishing.

Thanks include Sydney Benter of WTWO, who served as the evening’s emcee and Lifetouch National School Studios for photography.

A community that provides such outstanding recognition to its educators is one to be applauded. Thank you for your continuing support.

It’s time to start caring for people

Here we go again with gasoline prices going up, up and up. I was led to believe from news articles and press releases that after the switch from winter to summer formulas that the prices were suppose to go back down.

When are these politicos going to get out of bed with big oil and big corporations and start helping someone besides themselves? Probably never. What we as voters need to do is vote these multi-millionaires out of office and get some people in office that will do their jobs of taking care of the people they represent.

All voters, let’s do our jobs and get this done before we lose all our rights and our voices.
