Congratulations to our 2022-2023 Blackford County Schools' retirees Mrs. Cissy Clock, Kindergarten teacher at BPS; Mr. Thurman Cook, an Instructional Assistant at BJSHS; Mr. Don Peden, the Head Custodian at BJSHS; and Mrs. Nancy Slentz, food service staff member at BPS. The staff members were recognized during the End of Year Breakfast held this morning at BJSHS by Superintendent Chad Yencer and Assistant Superintendent David Parker. Building principals Craig Campbell, Jim Fox and Jason Ridge shared a bit about what makes these individuals so special. (We included a retro photo of Mrs. Slentz doing what she did so well during her career at BCS... serving others with a smile!) If you see any of these people, please wish them well. They have worked hard to make a difference in the lives of the students of Blackford County Schools! Best wishes, Cissy, Thurman, Don and Nancy! Relax and enjoy the next chapter of your lives! You deserve it! ❤️ #BruinProud
