For over 40 years, Liz Leigh has been a constant face in the Jefferson City School System. After 46 years as the Jefferson High School bookkeeper, Leigh announced her retirement in June.
A retirement reception was held for Leigh last week as JHS teachers and staff, along with district leaders, wished her a happy retirement and gave her gifts of appreciation.
“To be in the same place for 46 years and serving the community and school system like Mrs. Liz has done, it’s just fantastic,” said principal Kevin Smith. “We appreciate you so much.”
Smith said he hopes Leigh enjoys retirement but says the school has missed her this year.
