Senator Ratliff Honored For His Work In Education

Senator Bill Ratliff was honored Tuesday in Hallsville for his contributions in education. The retiring Senator was presented with several gifts during the reception that was held at Hallsville high school.

Senator Ratliff's last day on the job will be Saturday. He says there are parts of his job he will miss. "Well I'm told by my colleagues who have retired ahead of me that there are real withdrawl symptoms. I haven't felt them yet. There is some sense of relief. I know that there are parts of the job I'm going to miss," says senator Bill Ratliff.

Hallsville schools used the day to highlight one of the retiring senator's education successes. It's called Distance Learning and allows Hallsville high school students to be taught by a Texas State Technical College instructor in Marshall using computers.
