It was a day of recognition for 22 teachers who are retiring from the Meridian Public School District.
The retirement reception was hosted by the Meridian School District at the Temple Theatre.
Family, friends and co-workers used the occasion to say farewell.
"This entire event is to celebrate them," said Superintendent Sylvia Autry. "It is bittersweet, but they are happy for the time being."
All of the retiring educators combined have over 400 years of service with the Meridian Public School District.
