Celebrates Retirees’ 797 Years of Service

BOE Celebrates Retirees

It was an exciting evening at Atkinson School, as the Board of Education and administrators honored staff members who will be retiring from the district during a special ceremony. 

Joined by their families and friends, the retirees celebrated a collective 797 years of service to the district, students, community and public education, and were presented with commemorative plaques, flowers and gifts.

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham said district members will miss their professional expertise, personal touch and friendship.

“It’s bittersweet as I think of the tremendous impact you have made on the lives of our children in Freeport and certainly the impact you made for all of us who work here with you. We are happy for you and thankful for all your years of outstanding contributions to the organization’s goals, but, most importantly, shaping the futures of young minds and hearts. You have put in place the very foundations that have made this organization such a great success,” Dr. Kuncham said. “It is not possible to measure what each of you have meant to our district. You are leaving a lasting legacy with many giant steps that you have taken here. Best wishes to each of you on your new career as retirees. You have been our superheroes. Be the superheroes in your retirement. Let new days be adventurous, healthy, happy and everything beyond your expectations. Congratulations to each of you.”
