Our youngest child graduated from a four-year college this month. She was the last of our five children, and they have all graduated from a four-year college.
We wanted to take this time to personally thank all the teachers, coaches and administrators from Richland High School who were so instrumental in the education of our children.
You challenged them, encouraged them, and prodded them into becoming solid students. Many of you proved to be wonderful mentors and role models for our kids when they were in your classes or on your teams. You helped our children find academic success, and grow as adults.
We want you to know how much we appreciate what you have done for our family, and we thank you for what you do for our community.
TOM and MARY TIERNEY, Richland
