Menomonee Falls — Appreciation for service was the theme at a recent Menomonee Falls School Board meeting as the board honored retirees and current staff alike.

The board on May 20 recognized six district retirees with a combined 120 years of service in education, including a variety of specialties.

"The number of children Sue has helped learn to read is unbelievable," said Menomonee Falls High School Associate Principal Mike Harris, of Reading Recovery teacher Sue Boquist. Boquist is retiring after 30 years in education, the last 15 of which were in Menomonee Falls.

"I can't say enough about Anne," said North Middle School Associate Principal Scott Marty, of North Middle School special education aide Ann Lindemann, who is retiring after 16 years. "She is kind, dedicated, caring, and definitely makes a difference every day she's (been at) North."

Also recognized were Charlie Roskopf, Diann Donnel, Luciann Ullrich and Linda Braier.

"You don't replace people like Linda, Lucy and Sue," Marty said. "Linda told me her goal was always to make students feel good about themselves. I know she's accomplished that time and time again."

Sponsored by the Menomonee Falls Scholarship and Educational Foundation, Braier was also among six staff members from various departments who were recognized with the district's first-ever employee of the year awards.

The employees were nominated by peers, students, colleagues and leadership team members based on criteria such as quality of service, teamwork, and commitment to improvement, explained Superintendent Pat Greco.

"Children of the district have benefited from the full team of committed people focused on service," Greco said. "Our students, our departments and our system are (all) stronger because of these individuals."

In addition to Braier, other recipients of the employee of the year awards included Anne Bartos, Sara Burling, Adam Mosio, Jason Husslein and Tara Tess.
