COLUMBUS, Ind. – The Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation (BCSC) presented Joel Metzler with its 2019 Education Hall of Fame Award at its Monday evening board meeting. Metzler has just concluded 40 years of service with the corporation, most recently with 18 years as principal of Southside Elementary School.
Metzler came to Columbus in 1972 and taught at various schools before deciding on an administrative career direction. Several colleagues spoke of his contributions to their careers, schools and lives. He was known for the motto, “Today can be a great day or not. The choice is yours.”
The award was presented by BCSC superintendent Dr. Jim Roberts and board member Kathy Dayhoff-Dwyer.
