Due to social distancing there was not a retirement reception this year. However, we still wanted to recognize and honor Mr. Clark for his years of service and dedication to USD 405.
Cards & personal notes of congratulations were collected and sent to the district office. Representatives delivered those cards along with a golden apples and small cake on Sunday, May 3 to celebrate their retirement. View their Virtual Retirement Reception at the bottom of this page.
