A long-time Nebraska Center for the Education of Children who are Blind or Visually Impaired teacher was recognized for her years of service during a special ceremony May 1.
A bur oak tree was planted in memory of Anita Regler of Nebraska City near NCECBVI's driveway entrance on the south side of the facility. The tree's location was chosen to be next to the tree that was planted in memory of Regler's husband, Jerry Regler, whom was the school's superintendent from 1955 to 1988.
The Reglers' legacies paved the way for the school and the students.
"It's only appropriate that this tree is being planted next to a tree in Jerry's memory," NCECBVI administrator Sally Giittinger said during the ceremony. "Together, they formed a legacy here and their impact, memory and footprints live on."
