The retiring faculty and staff members for 2014 were honored at a retirement reception April 30 at City College.
During the event, all outgoing staff and faculty members were congratulated on their retirements, according to the official flyer for the event.
Among the retirees was Admissions and Records evaluator Rosie Vevea, who said that while she will miss the people and students of City College, she’s looking forward to hitting the open road to see America in her motorhome.
“I can’t wait to get out and relax,” said Vevea. “[I want to be remembered] as a hard worker and sweet woman.”
Also honored at the ceremony, Coordinator of the Learning Skills and Tutoring Center Kakwasi Somadhi said she will miss interacting with students and wants to be remembered as, “someone who loved her job and performed it well.”
Somadhi added that despite missing her daily work, she is excited for the future.
“I am looking forward to the freedom being retired brings,” said Somadhi. “I plan to spend my time writing, traveling, and being active in the community.”
