WYNOT — After a combined 86 years of teaching, three teachers are retiring from the Wynot Public School system.

Chuck and Rhonda Tramp and Ron Rolfes are leaving a place they have called their home away from home for so long.

“It has been an honor to be a member of the staff at Wynot Public School, to live in this community and be actively involved in the lives of our young people,” Chuck said. “In the words of Carolyn Tomlin, ‘It takes a community to raise a child,’ and it has truly been a privilege to be a part of that endeavor.”

Chuck arrived at Wynot Public in 1987 and for the past 26 years has been the business and computer science teacher. He also held several other positions including assistant football coach, assistant boys’ and girls’ basketball coach and head boys’ and girls’ track coach.

Along with being heavily involved in athletics at the school, Chuck was also a Future Business Leaders of America sponsor, Wynot Whisper advisor, revolving class sponsor and Wynot Education Association president.

Chuck will spend his retirement working on a short “bucket list,” which includes picking fresh peaches in Georgia with his kids, hopefully traveling to all the state parks and spending time with the grandchildren.

He is also looking forward to spending time with his wife of 40 years, Rhonda.

Rhonda began teaching at Wynot in 1984. Previously, she taught at St. Rose, Crofton, for two years.
