Bowling Green, KY (WBKO) - The Rotary Club of Bowling Green began its meetings for the year with the Bowling Green Independent School System superintendent.
Gary Fields discussed how the school system has prepared teachers to recognize and provide care and assistance to students to prevent security problems before they happen.
Another topic Fields discussed was pensions for teachers.
Gary Fields says, "Its important to the people that are working in our building, driving our buses, teaching our kids, serving food in the cafeteria, that, you know, they're worried about their future and their life beyond their work career. The state has made a promise and they need to honor that promise, and if they do have to make changes to the pension system, they need to do that in a way that doesn't penalize people giving their all to kids in this community."
The Rotary Club will host Warren County School System superintendent, Rob Clayton, on January 16.
The Bowling Green Rotary Club was chartered in September 1920 and meets every Wednesday at noon at the Bowling Green Country Club, 251 Beech Bend Road, Bowling Green, KY 42101.
