Albany State University honors workers who are ending long careers at the school.       

Seven retiring workers were the guests of honor at a recognition ceremony in the Student Center Ballroom this afternoon.  They have a total of 123 years of service to Albany State.  One retiree says it's bittersweet leaving the lasting friendships and relationship she's built at ASU.        

"I'm leaving my students and I'm hoping I left a mark on many of their lives and as well as they have left a mark on my life as well," said Laverne Luster-Wallace.  

"They play a vital part in our department here at Albany State University because without these people we can't succeed at what we do," said Steve Grant.       

Laverne Luster-Wallace taught English for 29 years. Here are the seven retirees who were honored:
