A nearly defunct group of retired Cobb school administrators is trying to reinvigorate its membership. The group dates back 40 years and most of the original members — who call themselves “the Ol’ Timers” — served under Superintendents Jasper Griffin, Alton Crews or Kermit Keenum.
“However, the years have taken a toll on the membership,” Dr. Stanley Wrinkle told the MDJ. “Those who are still active now hope to rebuild the organization to continue its traditions. We hope to involve all retired Cobb school administrators, past and present and encourage them to participate and give the new organization a great future.”
“I believe, as an organization, we can make a positive difference in the retirement years of our former administrators and supervisors. That is our first purpose,” Keenum said. “Additionally, we can be available to support and undergird the district as it faces the opportunities and challenges of the future.
They’re inviting all retired Cobb school employees who held an administrative/ supervisory position for at least a year to a 12:30 p.m. lunch meeting at the Bay Breeze Restaurant on Canton Road on May 22.
