Four employees were recognized for 40 years of service, including David Conley, David Moir, Gail Teixeira and Joanne Walsh. Six employees were recognized for 35 years of service, including Lois Burns, Margot Dietrich, Carol James, Karen Ann Kosendowski, Giselle LeBreton and Sherry Thistle. Many others received pins for 25 and 30 years of service. Thanks for all that you have done and continue to do for students.
