BSS bids farewell to two longtime staffers
December 15 was a special retirement day at Barriere Secondary School (BSS) as two of their workers bid farewell. School support worker Wanda Amos, and custodial worker Sheri MacGregor, said their goodbyes to their jobs, co-workers past and present, and friends at an afternoon tea in the BSS library. The room was humming with conversation and laughter as everyone had fun telling stories of the “remember when” kind, while enjoying a tasty assortment of refreshments provided by the staff.
