La Jolla Presbyterian Church says goodbye to retiring preschool teacher Betty Hilbert

By Ashley Mackin

La Jolla Presbyterian Church bid farewell to its preschool educator of 34 years, Betty Hilbert, at a retirement party May 31. Hilbert was a teacher for nine years, after which she spent more than 20 years directing the preschool program. The celebration was attended by current and former teachers, former students and friends from out of town. Many thanked her for the lessons she taught them.

Current and former teachers honor Betty Hilbert: (front row) Jenn Loper, Michele Chapman, Betty Hilbert, Julie Gibbs; (middle row) Susan Hinmon, Mary Jane Mitchell, Amy Jones, Mare Peddie, Connie Evans, Carrie Hicks; (top row) Tracy Martin, Valorie Anderson, Mary Lynn Carroll, Michelle Goeglein, Nena McGhee, Linda Martinico and Sandy Bacon.

Susie Myers (from Georgia), Laurel Scott, Cherry Lee, Bonnie Huggard (from Kentucky) and Regina Greenlee are among those who came from out of town for the party.

Mary Lynn Carroll is one of many to say a few words about Betty Hilbert (right).
