This week is "Teachers Appreciation Week", and we want to take this opportunity to thank the teachers for their dedication to the education of our children. We’d like to recognize the ways teachers went above and beyond during a year that was riddled with change and uncertainty. The children of today will be the leaders of our nation for tomorrow. So goes the leaders, so goes our nation and so goes our future. We truly appreciate you, the teachers, who form the ideals of our future leaders. Thanks so much for what you do each and every day. If you see a teacher in public, tell them how much you appreciate their efforts.
Richland Springs is proud to announce our valedictorian and salutatorian. High school valedictorian is Landon Burkhart and salutatorian is Kaitlin Sutherland. Congratulations to each on achieving these academic honors!
