The Escambia County Teachers Association held their summer training seminar Friday, June 21, in Atmore. While several topics were on the agenda, one of the priorities was the introduction of Jordyn Pleasant, a 2019 graduate of Escambia County High School.
Jordyn has committed to coming back to Atmore to teach when she gets her degree at Alabama State University. Also committing is ECHS graduate Adonis Williams who could not be at the seminar Friday.
As of July 1, ESCTA is starting a new Future Teachers of America chapter in hopes of getting students to come back home to serve in the school system.
Presenting at the seminar were Sherry Tucker, Alabama Education Association (AEA) president; Marcia Adams, ESCTA president; Melissa Daniel, ESCTA secretary and member of AEA Public Relations Commission; Jan Paskins, director District 24 UniServ (advocacy agency through National Education Association and AEA).
