Yesterday was the final day of the year for teachers. The students finished their exams on Thursday and we came in yesterday to clean-up, check grades, have a final meeting, and enjoy a BBQ with Mr. Mailloux's '72 amazing steak. It was also the last day for five members of our community who are moving on:
Ms. Kudrick of our math department is retiring after 40 years
Mrs. Magoun of our modern language department is retiring after 19 years
Mr. Nelson of our English department is retiring after 12 years (40 plus as a teacher)
Mrs. Hollingsworth of our athletic department is taking a job as a nurse. She was with us for 9 years
Ms. Girard of our theology department is leaving to pursue her vocation after 4 years at Trinity
I am going to take some time off eventually but we do have some trips planned this summer. Mr. Sheehan '79 and I are also taking some students on a day trip on Monday. This blog might be a little quiet after Monday but please do check in. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read about our work in Campus Ministry. As I often tell people, it's a labor of love and I can't believe I actually get paid to do what I do.
