COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bartholomew Consolidated School Corp. finished classes for the school year this week, sending students off to summer vacation Thursday while teachers and other staff members wrapped up the year today.
Farewells can be bittersweet for students moving ahead to a new grade, for teachers moving into new jobs at different schools or staff members taking on new roles or responsibilities.
But perhaps most bittersweet is when long-time educators who have dedicated most of their adult lives to Columbus area students are retiring.
