Thank You, Lin Chapman!

Lin Chapman
If you've ever gone into the Adult Education office at Telstar you've probably spoken with Lin Chapman. She's the woman who sits at the desk by the windows, managing the fiscal affairs of WMSC, helping solve audio/visual challenges in the classroom, and so much more.

After 24 years of working with SAD 44, Lin is retiring. On Friday, June 14, the Adult Ed staff invited all of us to an informal coffee/ lunch to say thanks to Lin.

We aren't really saying goodbye, as she will still be working in the office one day a week, and as Lin said on Friday, she's only a telephone call away. I believe that someone even mentioned the word “Skype.” (Watch out, Lin, those words may come back to haunt you!)

When asked what she would be doing now that she's retired Lin said she looks forward to having more time to devote to all the projects she's involved with already. We're hoping that she also has time to add a WMSC course or two to the mix.

Thank you, Lin, for all you've done for us over the years.
