·        prepare LEA members for post-retirement service

·        showcase examples of post-retirement service options

·        disseminate information about opportunities for service and resource people and  materials

·        encourage LEA connection to non-members by offering access to an e-mail distribution list, website, and Shaping the Future magazine.

The LEA EncourAGEnet team
of Dave Ebeling and Rick Kerr is matching prospective full time church work students on the Concordia campuses with retired Lutheran educators. The idea is to have those of us with a lifetime of experience mentor those entering the field in the next several years. So far, nine matches have been made. Five more college students have requested a mentor, so we need more EncourAGEnet volunteers. If interested, send an email to Rick Kerr, recently retired principal at St. John, Indianapolis: rk1950@sbcglobal.net. He’ll send you a brief questionnaire so that your interests and experience might match the major of the students as much as possible.

Retired LEA devotion… Since this publication is especially for veteran educators, perhaps you would enjoy access to a retired LEA devotion. See
“Be Aware of Outsiders” from 2008.

Exit laughing: You probably can relate on several levels to Bob Newhart’s “Stop It.”
