Trinity Lutheran School supporters hosted a reception for a longtime teacher who retired at the end of this past schoolyear in May.
Linda Goodpasture taught preschool for 27 years at Trinity. Known for her hugs, Goodpasture mostly taught the 4-year-old pre-school classes throughout her tenure. However, she also taught the 3-year-old pre-school classes for a few years at the school.
Goodpasture also is known for to catch up with her former preschoolers and reminiscing with them. Before Goodpasture’s retirement she had reached the milestone of teaching multiple generations of Trinity families.
The special retirement reception open house in Goodpasture’s honor was Sunday, Aug. 16 in the Trinity Lutheran School gymnasium. The event was initially scheduled for an earlier date, but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the interruption of the schoolyear.
Many of Goodpasture’s former students, parents, teachers, friends and staff came to celebrate or sent video messages offering congratulations to Goodpasture. A highlight of the event was a showing of the compiled videos.
