School Community Update
We often use the term family when referring to our school system. Our school family includes our students, parents, employees and our community in Butler County. Therefore, when someone in our school family is hurting or experiences a loss, we all help in any way that we are able.
I am deeply saddened that our school family has suffered two tragic losses of dedicated employees this past week. Mr. Gene Collins, a bus driver with our Transportation Department, passed away after an extended illness. Mr. Charles Brogden, a custodian at Georgiana School, also passed away this past week.
They were both wonderful people and gave their all for our students and our school system. Already, their friends, family, and fellow staff members greatly miss them. I ask all those in our school community to please keep those who are grieving in your prayers.
Our Butler County school family is committed to helping anyone in our community to the best of our abilities when the need presents itself. In turn, we would also like to express our appreciation of the love and support this community shows in times of crisis and loss.
Thank you and God Bless,
