“We know that we have a wonderful retirement with the benefits we receive but we do not equate our retirement with the ‘rocking chair’ mentality,” McDaniels told the group. “None of you are rocking unless it is to the beat of ‘Elvira!’ We want to continue to be a part of our communities and state. I know of no other group like educators who have always given so much help to others.”
