2017 Teacher Appreciation Breakfast and Recognition
What a way to brighten a rainy and gloomy day! Rose Hill Staff members celebrated National Teacher Appreciation day on Wednesday, May 3, at the RHHS Commons. Retirees and those who have taught 25 years were also recognized.
All Staff members joined their colleagues in fellowship at a breakfast of various flavored muffins, fruit, cheese omelet, hash browns, sausage patty, juice and coffee served up by the Rose Hill Schools Food Service staff.
Rose Hill School Board President Kirk Hayden was present to keep the coffee and water flowing.
Superintendent Randal Chickadonz began presentations at about 8:15 a.m. He started by thanking the food service ladies for preparing the wonderful breakfast. Each year Kansas University issues certificates to those educators who have taught a total of 25 years. This year Mr. Chickadonz presented certificates to 3 of the district’s Math Teachers; Karen Simmons - RHMS 6th Grade Math, Dan Cole - RHHS Math and Steve Siemens - RHMS 8th Grade Math.
Mr. Chickadonz then asked that Mrs. Deana Yohe come forward. Mrs. Yohe has taught at Rose Hill Intermediate School since 2005. She is leaving the education profession to help her husband with the family business. A Brass School Bell was presented to Deana. Her name and years of service were engraved on the bell.
Last but not least and bitter sweet the three retirees were called forward; Alan L. Vancil, Diane Myers and Stephen “Rocky” Stone. 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. There were many hugs and well wishes going around, as well as, photo shots.
