Sarah Borgman, a member of the NEA-Retired executive council, and past president of the Indiana State Teachers Association-Retired (ISTA-Retired), was elected last Wednesday to lead NEA-Retired, which represents 317,000 retired educators nationwide.
Borgman was elected by delegates to the organization’s Annual Meeting, held June 27 and 28 in Boston. She will succeed the current NEA-Retired president, Tom Curran, whose second three-year term expires this summer.
In remarks near the conclusion of the gathering, Borgman struck an appreciative note for the “vote of confidence” her election represents.
“My heart is full for all of you in this room, and for our members across this nation…I promise that I will give you my best and that I will listen and together we will write a new chapter in the history of NEA-Retired,” Borgman said.
