Queen City says goodbye to two of its own
A retirement reception was held for two Queen City ISD employees on Aug. 29 honoring their many years of dedication.
Gayle Miller has been in the Bulldog family for 36 years. She began her career as a math and English teacher in 1982. Nine years later, she became a Library Media Specialist. In 2001, the district created a new position, Director of Technology, and she was hired to fill that position. Just a few more years later, her responsibilities again expanded and she was named the Director of Instruction and Technology.
Retirement won’t be slowing Miller down, she has started a business as an education consultant, contracting with Region VIII Service Center and area school districts to provide advice and assistance in meeting state and federal regulations.
“I balance my time working with plenty of family and travel time,” said Miller. “In fact, I have a ‘sisters’ trip to Boston planned for the first week of October.”
Miller said God’s hand has led her for many years, and she is looking forward to seeing where He will take her now. “My desire is to honor Jesus Christ in my work and in my play.”
Holly Holmes has been in the Bulldog family for 16 years. She began her career in 2002 in the human resource, payroll and benefits department.
“I have enjoyed working for Queen City these past 16 years,” Holmes said. “It is a wonderful place to work and has wonderful people to work with.”
Holmes said she doesn’t have any set plans for retirement, but to just see where life takes her.
“The retirement reception was beautiful and I enjoyed seeing everyone. Thank you to everyone who came by to visit me. I will miss being part of the QCISD family,” she added.
