Martha Manchester, appointed an at-large member of the Ohio Board of Education in January by Gov. John Kasich, spoke about her experiences and shared information with the group. She stressed that the state board makes recommendations, but the legislature has the final say.

President Emerson Brown led the meeting and introduced B.J. Woodruff, area representative from the Ohio Retired Teachers Association, who shared current news from her group in Columbus. 

Any retired educator is welcome to attend the next meeting at noon Dec. 7 at the Bellefontaine First Church of God, 1000 E. Brown Ave., Bellefontaine.
