FAK FROM RETIRED
The story of a wise investment 60
yean old, that ha* not fluctuated
with the value of the dollar, but
grown steadily in worth and value
throughout the years, and is bringing
to the investor large dividends of
love, confidence and gratitude, was
related, Wednesday, by those taking
part in a program honoring Miss
Annie Perkins, veteran educator, in
recognition of achievements of the
past and of enduring inspiration to
?the present and future.
This investment has also brought
to Miss Annie the exuberance, opti
mism, courage and vision of the
very young and been to her a secret
wellspring of eternal youth.
She has served with ability and
high purpose, a sincere Christian
gentlewoman, whose devotion to this
community will be remembered long
and cherished always.
Far from retiring, except from her
position as a teacher in the school,
Miss Annie will go on and on, achiev
ing and playing an important part in
the progress of Farmville in a service
that will reveal itself in an ever wid
We would remind her that "The
path of the just is as the shining
light, that shmeth more and more
unto the perfect day," and that it is
only the godly who can face advanc
ing years with the calm assurance of
"Grow old along with me.
The best is yet to be.
The last of life for which
The first was made."
Miss Annie retired! Nonsense.

lutions profound a]
Annie Perkins for I
ful and eminent service which she
tion.1 endeavor^ ?
pupils whom *e has taught and
constructive educationaJ^program fat
the public schools of Fumvilfe for
many yean. >
Aaide from these very high attri
butes which Miss Anu^p has made in
the development of the individual
cftixenry of our comrmxqity, she has
ever been faithful to her duties and
responsibilities as a leader in all civic
and community projects which were
for the betterment and upbuilding of
Miss Perkins has watched and has
been closely identified with the-pub
lic "thool system of Fsrmville from
its very inadequate beginnings to its
present position of high standards
among the schools of our State. Her
work and unselfishneen to duty have
marked her as a true leader in the
educational fie id.
In addition to the very fine charac
teristics which have always motivated
Miss Annie's every thought and deed,
she has endeared herself to the
hearts and minds of hundreds of peo
ple in our community. There is hard
ly a man or woman in tw? communi
ty whose life has not been affected
and uplifted by the splendid example
and high counsel of Miss Annie. She
has taught members of three genera
tions, and it is with extreme regret
that we of the School Board see her
leave her accustomed and familiar
place among the halls and in the
councils of our teachers.
Therefore, be it resolved that this
Board does extend to Miss Annie
Perkins its sincerest felicitations and
best wishes for her long continuing
happiness and good health, along with
the undying thanks and ardently ex
pressed gratitude of this Board and
the entire citisenry of Farmville for
her magnanimous offerings of service
to our community.
Be it further resolved that a copy
of these Resolutions be spread on the
minutes of the Farmville Board of
Education, that a copy be presented
to Miss Annie Perkins and that a
copy be mailed to the "Farmville En
terprise" for publication.
Respectfully end gratefully pre
sented on this the twenty-second day
