Proviso Township High Schools District 209 thanked and honored 100 of its faculty and staff – including 14 who are retiring – at the annual Staff Retirement and Recognition Dinner on May 8 at The Clubhouse in Oak Brook.
 
The faculty and staff members were celebrated at the special dinner for their extraordinary contributions to the district. They included 37 employees who have served in the district for at least 15 years, nine who earned a graduate degree during the past year, and 43 faculty and staff members who made a special contribution and effort to the district and its schools during the 2014-15 school year.
 
Receiving particular recognition was Ms. Molly Cavanaugh, who is marking 60 years of service with the District, including the last 56 at Proviso West High School as the principal’s secretary.
 
"Molly’s work ethic, hard work, and loyalty make her stand out as someone who should all know," said a tribute to her by the Proviso West main office staff in the banquet’s program. "She is an inspiration to all of us, and we appreciate all of the sacrifices she has made down through the years."
 
In addition, Ms. Renee Braun, an English teacher at Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy and a District 209 employee for 11 years, was remembered. Ms. Braun passed away in April.
