When children in the Holgate schools head toward recess and playtime; a special place will help them remember a long-time teacher in the district that passed away a few years ago. Family and Friends of Linda Nartker donated funds for the construction of a shelter house on the Holgate school playground. That shelterhouse was dedicated last week, the day before classes opened at Holgate. The structure was built by Holgate Lumber Company and Gray’s Constrruction, who also donated to the cause. Linda Nartker began her teaching career in 1975 at Holgate elementary; and mentored children for more than 30 years. She passed away from liver cancer in September 2008.
