Three of ACES family members were honored on Monday, May 22, 2017, with a retirement tea. Lisa Cowan, Pam Jones and Patty Antle have decided to begin the next phase in their lives and begin the glorious years of retirement.
Mrs. Lisa began her teaching career in Lyon County, Kentucky in 1988. In 1990 she came back home and began teaching kindergarten at Shepherd Grade Center. After fourteen years in kindergarten and a brief stint in 3nd grade, she moved to a Title 1 collaborative teacher position at Shepherd. Mrs. Lisa plans to work with her mother at Anna's Garden Center in Russell Springs and substitute teach.
She is also looking forward to spending more time with her husband Darrell, daughters Brooke and BreAnna and her son-in-law Chase Coffey. "ACES sure is going to miss Mrs. Lisa, aka DJ Jazzy Lisa. We will miss seeing her smiling and positive face at ACES. Rest assured that anything that Mrs. Lisa did, she did it with that huge smile and heart leading the way," says Mr. Steve Burton, ACES Principal.
Ms. Pam Jones began her teaching career at Knifley Grade Center in 1990, where she taught kindergarten students for several years before becoming a Title 1 collaborative teacher in 1997. Upon the closure of Knifley, she moved to ACES where she has continued in the Title 1 program. Mrs. Jones grew up in a family of educators. Her father Joseph Parnell taught at Adair County High School and her mother, Norma Jean Parnell, worked in the school office at Colonel William Casey.
It only seemed natural that she and her sister Ann Parnell Marr would continue that tradition and become educators. She is not sure what she will do after retirement but plans to do "whatever I want to do, whenever I want to do it." "Wow! I don't know what life at ACES will be like without Ms. Jones. Ms. Jones has definitely been the glue that has held ACES together. We wish Ms. Jones nothing but the best in the next chapter of her life," states Mr. Steve Burton.
