It was July 1994 when Andrew Bone became a salaried employee at Chemeketa. Twenty-three years and five months later, Andrew will wrap up a distinguished career when he retires November 30. Over sixty colleagues and the members of the Chemeketa Board of Education gathered the evening of Wednesday, November 15 to thank Andrew.
Andrew responded to the audience that he recalled a now-retired faculty member used to describe Chemeketa as “the first church of the second chance.”
Andrew said, “That just doesn’t apply to students. That applies to me too. Thank you.”
