slide4.pngA retirement ceremony for many long-standing school officials proved to be a joyous yet solemn occasion for all in attendance last Wednesday. The simplicity of the setting only seemed to add to its solemnity, as school board members lined up in front of five rows of fold-out chairs at the end of the Argonaut High School multi-purpose room. The honors began with a simple speech from board member Mary Walser and the presentation of a plaque to retiring Superintendent Mike Carey. Carey made a speech saying he was honored by the opportunity the school system has given him. Other retiring teachers followed. Each retiree took turns walking down the line and shaking hands with School Board members. They were also presented with an engraved teacher’s bell, described as “a small audible reminder of the school district’s gratitude.” After the formal presentation, cake was served and many of the honorees discussed what they will look forward to in their retirement years.
