As the school year draws to a close, we say a fond farewell to three who have decided to retire. Plant Facilities Manager Mr. Rufus Flowers, Cafeteria personnel Ms. Rosemary Wordlaw and Custodial staff member Mr. Arthur “Paul” Clay have a cumulative 68 years of service to JPS amongst them.
When asked to speak, each of our retirees mentioned the sense of community that they always felt while working at King. Ms. Wordlaw, who is retiring after more than 37 years with JPS stated that she missed her friends at Grace King, but “retirement is truly wonderful.”
Although we could be sad at their departure, we choose to be happy that we had the time with them and wish them well on the next chapter in their lives.
