Albany State retirees honored

April 21, 2008

Albany -- College campuses have changed a lot over the years. And Monday Albany State University honored some dedicated workers who witnessed much of that change.

Employees who are retiring this academic year were honored at A.S.U.'s annual retirement celebration. Six retirees provided a total of 131-years of service to the university.

The event's theme was "Realizing the Rewards for Dedicated Service". And this teacher says after years of work she definitely does.

"A lot of memories, a lot of memories, from working with students in a classroom, to working with my undergraduate sorers to just working with non-traditional students and working with the students; I have learned as much from them as I have taught them," said Mary Morris.

Mary Morris worked at Albany State for more than 37-years. She wanted to make it to 40, but health problems forced her to retire early.
