RCS honored six retirees at its 2021 closing meeting on June 2. Mike Czysz, Pete Tuck and Eric Swanson retired last year, but the school was unable to recognize them then, due to the pandemic. They were honored this week, along with Sherri Slade, Laura Stoute and Teresa Elliott, who retired this year. We thank each of the retirees for their service to RCS and wish them well in retirement.
Keegan Storrs, or "Profe," as he's known to students, is the RCS Teacher of the Year for 2021-2022. Storrs has taught high school Spanish at RCS since 2016. He leads the annual RCS in Spain trip, lends his musical talents to school productions, and is a true team player, according to RCS High School Principal Darkarai Bryant. Congratulations, Profe! We are #bulldogproud!
