A few local teachers will be honored Thursday as they retire from the classroom.
H.B. Sugg Elementary in Farmville will be hosting a ceremony celebrating the service the retiring teachers have provided for its school.
Retiring teachers, including Beth Hardy who taught for 30 years, will be awarded in the order of the Long Leaf Pine, a state recognition honoring service, charity, and state pride.
The special ceremony starts 1:30 p.m. Thursday at H.B. Sugg Elementary.
