Long time educator and community volunteer/organizer, Jacque Zeller, officially retired last week from being the director of the Anderson Community Education Center.

Jacque has been with Anderson County Schools for 18 years and has been working with the public for 50 years.  While heading the ACE Center, she has helped countless residents and young adults with various educational needs as well as volunteering and helping with many organizations throughout the county.

For her final Community of Promise meeting last week, many local officials and community members wished her well in her retirement as well as recalling the mark she has made on the county.  “Jacque is a community player…She loves our community,” said Sherry Noon, children’s librarian at the Anderson Public Library.

Lawrenceburg City Clerk, Robbie Hume, continued, ““Jacque has been an asset to everyone…We sure are going to miss her.” Anderson County Sheriff, Joe Milam, also added, “She’s the epitome of community service.”

Jacque explained that she will be taking the next few months off to travel the country with her husband.  She, however, still has plans to continue volunteering in the community in the future.

Also announced at the meeting was the new director of the center.  Anderson County High School Spanish, arts, and humanities teacher, Elizabeth Swartz, became the new director of the center.  “I love teaching at Anderson County High School,” she said as she explained that Anderson County has one of the best school districts in the region after researching the different districts for her children when moving to the area seven years ago.

Elizabeth has been an educator for 28 years and has done various volunteer projects as the Kiwanis Key Club Advisor at the high school.  She looks forward to working with all of the families of Anderson County through being the director at the center.
