  • Congratulations to our Retirees!

    Congratulations to Mrs. McGarty, Mrs. McRorie, and Mrs. Reavis. We wished these ladies a happy retirement at the end of the 2017-18 school year. These three were at Western Union long before many of us came here. While it is hard to know how many lives you have impacted, one thing we know for sure, Western Union will not be the same without you!
