  Two educators with a combined total of 65 years’ service in the classroom were heralded for their longstanding careers.
   The Harrison Hills City School Board of Education recognized Kim Coleman and Debbie Trotter, who retired from their positions in local elementary schools.

   Coleman began working with the district in 1976 and taught at Harrison Central and Harrison East Elementary Schools for 35 years.
   “She had 35 years’ experience and always interacted with the kids with full energy,” praised Superintendent Dr. George Ash.

   District Administrative Assistant Dana Snyder, who has known Coleman since childhood, said being a teacher was a lifelong dream.
   “She always knew that was her goal,” she said. “She loved her job to the last day she worked.”

   Trotter, who has served the school system since 1972, spent her time at Harrison Hopedale, Harrison Westgate and Harrison North in Scio after a brief stint at Harrison Jewett Elementary. Dr. Ash said he would remember her best for her kindness.

   “She’s a genuine human being and she’s loving,” he commented.
   Dr. Ash added that the women were leaving on a high note since the district has scored two excellent and an effective rating on the state report card, and he attributed that to the dedication of all teachers and staff.
   “I thank Mrs. Coleman and Mrs. Trotter. Although they retired, gave us 65 years of service,” he said. “They will be sorely missed.”
