BHM retirees
Wednesday Jun 5, 19

(Click on the photo to the left to enlarge the photo.)

This year, 21 employees, from around the district, have already or will retire from BHM Schools. Combined, they have provided 530 years of service to the district.

Superintendent Scott Thielman and members of the school board took time on Friday, May 3, to recognize each employee for their dedication to BHM students and the years of service they provided. They have all played a valuable role in shaping the lives of students, both directly and indirectly and allowed students to dream, believe and achieve.

BHM thanks the retirees for their many years of service and the impressions they have made on students, staff and the community. Best wishes to all in the next phase of their lives.
