CSB Celebrates Retiring Employees
After many years of service, the Cree School Board honoured retirees from last year and this year. Chairperson Dr. Sarah Pash acknowledged the retired employees on social media.
“CONGRATULATIONS!” said the Chairperson, “For today, I want to say thank you for everything you have done. You have worked tirelessly to ensure that our language remains a priority, that our culture and traditions have a place in our education system, that we continue to develop and produce our own teachers.”
Managers, teachers, professionals, and support staff were among those who retired from the Cree School Board, with some having been there since the early 1980s.
All retiring employees deserve our appreciation for their years of service and dedication to student success in Eeyou Education. The following individuals were honoured as retirees:
