Retired teachers donate to library in honor of Carroll County children

FPS staff report

Members of the Carroll County Retired Teachers Association recently donated a “symbol of a proud USA: a bald eagle”, to the Carroll County District Library.

Walt Shaver, a retired teacher who has a talent for carving items from wood, carved the bird in 2012 and donated it to the Retired Teachers organization.

Members felt the painted statue would be a great addition to the library and dedicated it to children of Carroll County; past, present, and future.

Two members of the Retired Teachers who presented the statue to Marcia Schaffer, children’s librarian and the Carrollton location of the Carroll County District Library are shown at right.
