The Highland County Retired Teachers Association (HCRTA) held its quarterly business meeting May 6 at the Ponderosa Banquet Center in Hillsboro.

One of the goals of HCRTA is to have outstanding guest speakers who discuss timely topics of interest at each meeting. The featured speaker at this meeting was Jared Warner, who serves as the county health commissioner.



Warner presented a very informative discussion of the medical marijuana issue and its impact on the future in Highland County. The HCRTA expressed sincere thanks to Warner for his presentation.

The next regular meeting of HCRTA will be Aug. 5, and the topic will be the opioid crisis and its effect on the local community.
