|DELPHOS — For twenty years, Jane Rahrig has been the secretary at Jefferson High School. Friday marked the end of her long career at Delphos City Schools. However, the high school is losing more than just a secretary.
After getting a new school year started, Jefferson High School Secretary Jane Rahrig retired Friday after 20 years at the school.
“She wore many hats,” said Elaine Rode, co-secretary and Rahrig’s replacement. “She is just wonderful and we are going to miss her so much. She does so much for this school.”
Rode was not the only one to display affection for Rahrig. The office was a buzz with grateful visitors and co-workers.
Guidance Counselor Martin Ross was one of many grateful to have worked with Rahrig.
“Jane has been a blessing to me and this entire office and this entire school. She has been a strong support and cares so much about our students. She is the best,’ Ross stated.
As Rahrig was showered with grateful praises, principal John Edinger reflected on her impact.
“She is wonderful,” said Edinger. “Today we lose a part of Delphos Jefferson High School.”
Everyone in the office conveyed her positive attitude and persistent smile.
“She was great with angry parents and angry students while never complaining,” said Edinger. “She also boosted my moral. She helped me out and made me look good.”
A woman of few words on such an emotion-filled day, Rahrig left DJHS with very high regard for her co-workers.
“The people here are what have made it so wonderful. Everyone from the students to the staff have made Delphos Jefferson such a great place to work,” said Rahrig. As she gazed at her many flowers that hid her desk she whispered with a smile, “This is a nice place.”
