The Texas Retired Teachers Association held its 60th annual convention April 9-11 in Corpus Christi. Their “Diamond Jubilee by the Sea” drew more than 900 educators from across the state, and were encouraged by Mayor Nelda Martinez and Corpus Christi Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Scott Elliff. The group was entertained by Riney Jordan, former teacher, principal, and assistant superintendent from the Dallas area, and educated by Ronnie Jung, former executive director of the Teacher Retirement System, and Diane Oakley, the executive director of the National Institute on Retirement Security.

Retirees met to discuss the future of their health-care system and pension issues. “We’re in a critical time during legislative session,” said TRTA President Maridell Fryar. The 83rd legislative session is more than half over and there is still much work to do. Public education retirees have not received a permanent pension increase in 12 years and immediate concerns about the TRS-Care system are in discussion at this time.

Wilson County Retired School Personnel was represented at the convention by Bill Gleeson, Priscilla Kincaid, Bonnie Rice, Melissa Ramos, and Jesse Ramos. They had the opportunity to learn about TRTA’s progress with the Texas Legislature, tell their stories, and participate in training sessions. “TRTA is a strong system that provides retirement security for 1 out of every 20 Texans,” said Tim Lee, TRTA executive director. “We equip our members with facts and confidence to share the message that now is the time for the Legislature to make retirees a priority,” Lee said.
