Director of Schools Gary Aytes has been to a lot of retiree receptions at the Roane County bus garage over the years.
Last week’s was different, however, because this time, Aytes was one of the retirees.
“It’s been a great pleasure of mine to be associated with you,” he told the crowd.
Twenty-five retirees were recognized at the ceremony, though not all attended.
One who did was J. Kathy Brummitt, a special education teacher at Harriman Middle School.
