School system honors retirees with reception
By Brian Bowden

McDuffie County School Superintendent Jim LeBrun and the school system honored the retirees for 2014 during the annual retirement reception on May 29 at the Thomson High School cafeteria.
"Thank you for your sacrifice and your many years for making this school system work and for everything that you have done for our students, said LeBrun. "To make the mission successful, it takes all of you and all the years that you've put in. It does not go unnoticed. As you take the next step in your life, take great pride in this past chapter."
Although not all retirees were in attendance, the ones that were spoke highly of the many years they spent working with the students and other faculty members. "I'm going to miss working with the children. I'm also going to miss working with the team that I'm working with now," said THS vocational business education teacher Elene Favors. "I never envisioned that we [my husband and I] would be here as long as we've been here. Its been 30 years that we've been in Thomson. Thank you all so much for everything and I'm going to miss you all, but I will be back in the building."
Danny Allen, long-time custodian at Norris Elementary School, had a bittersweet end to his tenure at the school. "I didn't want to retire. I don't really want this. I'm too young to be retired, but circumstances happen," said Allen. "Thank y'all very much. I enjoyed working with everyone. This is one of the best school systems I think there is. The people in it will take you in and love you."
