Teachers, custodians and staff were honoured Thursday

Retiring teachers and staff were treated to a unique ceremony Thursday that honoured their contributions to School District 8 students.

Because of physical distancing requirements, the district skipped a party in favour of visiting Kaslo’s J.V. Humphries, Nelson’s L.V. Rogers and Slocan with a bus carrying crates of gifts for teachers.

Here’s a list of everyone stepping away from the classroom:

Teachers: Sandy Boscariol, Tony Musa, Deb Naka, Debbie Sabourin, Janet Stephenson, Barbara Brogan, Doug Van Sickle, Wendy Gagnon and Lorraine Malakoff.

Education assistants: Beverly Dosenberger, Annie Valentine, Marjery Jmaeff, and Sharon Cresswell.

Custodians: Joelifern Eimer, Joseph Tummillo, Dianne Ogden, Allen Lissa, and Brenda Jmio.

Staff: Library clerk Denise Fournier, secretary Donna Skopac, secretary Deb Van Zanden, and human resources manager Audrey MacKenzie.
