2013 BHM Retirements

This year, 15 individuals, from all areas of the district, will retire from BHM Schools. Combined, they have provided over 440 years of service to the district.

Superintendent Scott Thielman and members of the school board took time out 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.

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.
