“Every employee in our school district has a valuable role in helping address student needs,” states Dr. Yvette Smith Mason, Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources. “While we know these retiring employees will be missed, we are excited to honor them for their service to our schools and their contributions to North Carolina public education. We wish all of them a wonderful retirement.”

Dr. Mason thanked the retirees for their hard work and commitment to education. As a final token of appreciation, each retiree was presented a plaque by WCPS superintendent, Dr. Michael Dunsmore, for their faithful service to the district.

All total, retirees had nearly 1,800 cumulative years employed in the education profession in North Carolina. The 2017-2018 retirees are as follows:
