The Wilton Board of Education said good-bye to 13 employees with a combined 280 years of service at its meeting on Thursday, June 13. James Abbott, an industrial school teacher, and Catherine Hannah, a family/consumer science teacher, each dedicated 41 years to Wilton Public Schools. Both finished their careers at Middlebrook School.
“As a parent, and as a member of the community, I cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us,” Board of Education Chairman Bruce Likly said in his presentation. “I can say, to a person, you will be missed greatly.”
