2015 Retirement Social

Last Wednesday, June 3rd, Green River honored its most recent retirees. Current and past staff and faculty came together to celebrate their combined total of 361 years of service at our college.Retirees Group Photo

The audience applauded the retirees as they received their service plaques and pins, and listened as they spoke proudly about their time at Green River. Naturally, their stories differed from department to department, but every retiree, whether a former instructor or staff member, expressed immense gratitude for the relationships they had developed at the college. With comments ranging from, “Coming to Green River was the best decision I made,” to “This College is like no other,” it was easy to be reminded of the special nature of our school and to be infected with their pride.
