Retirees Recognized for Service

Retiree Pine-Richland School District recognized two more employees who retired recently. They included Mrs. Diane Duryea and Mr. Ron Keibler.

Maintenance Employee Ron Keibler is retiring after 14 years. Mr. Keibler was the in-house expert on heating and cooling. He helped redesign the heating and Retiree and family cooling system in the new STEAM addition of the high school.

While Mr. Keibler worked in the heating and air conditioning and refrigeration industry, he says Pine-Richland has been the best place he worked especially because of the people he has had a chance to work with through the years. He says he is planning to relax and possibly open a sheet metal shop in retirement. He is shown to the left at retiree recognition and to right with his family before being recognized at the board meeting on Sept. 25, 2017.
