The March 15th meeting in 2018 will feature Dr. Robin Rayfield speaking about what is going on at ORTA (changes associated with the strategic plan) and an update on STRS matters. The luncheon is at the American Legion In Kent at 11:30.
Dr. Rayfield, the new Executive Director of ORTA, retired from the superintendent’s position at Pike Delta York Local in 2012 after 31 years as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, principal, university professor and superintendent, mostly in northwest Ohio.
After retirement he worked at two universities, Findlay and Ohio University. Dr. Rayfield, who has been married to his wife, Stephanie, for 30 years, has three children: Ryan, Reid and Ross. He is a member of the Ohio Wrestling Coaches Hall of Fame and the National Wrestling Hall of Fame.

Dave Gynn Receives an ARRP Award!
Dave Gynn received the Excellence in Uniting Generations award from AARP. At the request of NEOMED, Dave started the proctoring with PCRTA members, who have given over 5.000 hours of service to NEOMED. Because PCRTA receives a stipend for proctoring, we have been able to award a scholarship each year to several area high school students interested in majoring in education, who are selected by our scholarship team.
Other donations to our scholarship fund are greatly appreciated as well!
INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS
Carol Kinsey, District Director from ORTA, installed the three officers for PCRTA. The remaining officers have another year to serve on their two year term.
