On March 6, 2018, Governor Tom Wolf signed a document proclaiming June 28, 2018, PASR Day in Pennsylvania. PASR (Pennsylvania Association of School Retirees) is a Pennsylvania based association that represents former teachers, nurses, secretaries, aides, bus drivers, cafeteria workers, counselors, maintenance staff, and administrators.
In attendance for the proclamation were PASR’s Executive Director Mark McKillop, Region 4 Director and Leadership Development Committee Chair Jean Young, President Elect Judith Schaffer, President Gary Parker, and Region 3 Director Robert McNamara.
PASR was established on December 28, 1937, and is a pioneer of nonprofit voluntary membership organizations nationally, having helped establish both the National Retired Teachers’ Association in 1947 and the American Association of Retired Persons in 1958. PASR is celebrating its 80th Anniversary of service to the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and is comprised of approximately 66 chapters throughout Pennsylvania and the nation.
PASR members volunteer across the state working toward the well-being of children, the elderly, and those in need. PASR continually makes contributions to Pennsylvania’s communities, by donating to food banks, clothing banks, and libraries. PASR is dedicated to public education and to lifelong learning. PASR recognizes the outstanding achievements of public school educators and employees through educational grants and awards, as well as supporting students obtaining a higher education through scholarships.
