Hello - 

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself, as I will be serving as your President (2018-2020).  My name is Julie Fox Spears and I retired with 31 years in public school education.  I am married to Craig Spears,also a retired educator. We now call New Boston our home.

Founded in 1953, the Texas Retired Teachers Association (TRTA) is the largest association in the nation for retired teachers with a history of active involvement in the well-being of their communities!  Our unit, Western Bowie County RTA, is active to keep retirees informed on all the issues that affect and impact their future.  We give back through service activities such as Children’s Book Project to area elementary schools, volunteer hours, and contributing to The Texas Teachers Foundation which gives grants to retirees in critical need.

Our unit meets on 4th Monday of each month from September through May and offers the opportunity to fellowship with fellow retirees.  I encourage you to join us as we are "Preserving the Past, Securing the Future".



Julie Fox Spears, WBCRTA President
