District Honors Retirees

Retiree Pic Pine-Richland School District honored two employees who are retiring in January of 2017. They include State Reporting Coordinator Jan Schnaufer and Nurse Suzanne Leonberg, who both served the district for nearly 21 years each. In addition to state reporting coordinator, Mrs. Schnaufer has served in many roles through the years, which include serving as a help desk and technology support services coordinator.

Colleagues say that Mrs. Schnaufer’s keen attention to detail, determination to see projects to completion and her loyalty to Pine-Richland will be missed.
 
Mrs. Leonberg had the opportunity to begin her journey in the district as a school nurse at Richland Elementary, then made her way to Eden Hall Upper Elementary as it opened. She wrapped up her final two years as a high school nurse. Mrs. Leonberg says she will cherish her experiences and the opportunity she had to follow a generation of children from their first day of kindergarten through high school graduation.
