NASELLE - Joan Johnson (left) and Shirley Miller retired from the Naselle School District at the end of June after a total of 69 years of dedicated service. Both worked in the school office as secretaries this past school term.

Johnson graduated from NHS in 1964 and began work in the district Oct. 1, 1971. She was a traffic safety instructor, ticket taker at special events, cheerleader coach, bus driver and secretary during her 37 years of service.

Miller graduated from NHS in 1970 and was hired Aug. 16, 1976, as a secretary. She also was a middle school class advisor and Natural Helper advisor during her 32 years of service.

Johnson and Miller helped literally thousands of students, faculty and community members by doing a myriad of tasks. Both went the extra mile on countless occasions and both Johnson and Miller will be missed by the school district they have served so well.
