Retired Teacher Honored At Gala

Retired teacher Bettie J. Curtis will be honored Saturday night with the Legends Award at the Second Annual Blossoming Minds MLK Gala at the Orange County Expo Center.

The sold-out black-tie event pays tribute to local leaders, volunteers, and service organizations. Mrs. Curtis taught more than a half century at Orange schools, beginning at the old Wallace High School in the days of segregation and she finished her career after some 40 years at West Orange-Stark High School.

The gala begins at 5:30 p.m. Saturday with a mixer and the program will start at 6:30 p.m.
