This year's appreciation breakfast started with various flavored muffins, fruit, cheese omelet, hash browns, sausage patty, milk and coffee served up by the Rose Hill Schools Food Service Staff. All of the employees of Rose Hill Schools enjoyed time to visit with each other while enjoying such a delicious breakfast.
Superintendent Randal Chickadonz began presentations at about 8:15 a.m., starting by thanking the food service ladies for preparing such a wonderful breakfast. Each year Kansas University issues certificates to those educators who have taught a total of 25 years. Certificates were presented to Brian Stranghoner, Shelley Hewett and Janice Pray.
Superintendent Chickadonz then asked that Mrs. Dena Dassel come forward. Mrs. Dassel has taught at Rose Hill Primary School since 2004. Another teacher Mrs. Connie Morman was not present, but was honored. Mrs. Morman too has taught at the Primary School and has been there since 2008. A 13'' Brass School Bell was presented to both teachers. Their name and years of service were engraved on the bell.
Again like last year, but not planned three retirees were called forward; Kathleen Feigl, Alberta Gibson and George B. Stump. These three employees have contributed 61 years of service to Rose Hill Schools. They each received a New Chadbourne Chiming Mantle Clock by Bulova engraved with the following: 1st line, In Appreciation of Dedicated Service to Rose Hill Schools, USD 394; 2nd line, retiree’s name and 3rd line, beginning and ending employment years.
These retirees received a standing ovation.
