Departing staff leaves rich experience, legacy

Our View

As the school year draws to a close and seniors prepare for life outside high school, seven staff members are similarly saying goodbye to Cedar Falls High School. We at the Hi-Line would like to wish them the best of luck in their future endeavors and thank them for their committed service over the years.

The seven departures—social studies teacher John Mullan, choir teacher Kendra Wohlert, Spanish teacher Linda McCormack, math teacher Mary Staniger, math teacher Bill Bader, counselor Ryan Flaherty and nurse Sue Gettman —are all pursuing different paths next year, some within the education sector, some outside. Examining the breadth and scope of this combined influence, it is clear that the school is losing invaluable experience and dedication.

The educators and personnel here are a primary factor behind Cedar Falls’ reputation as a school of academic excellence, and the presence of these teachers and staff will be greatly missed.

On the other side of the coin, we wish the administration success in filling these enormous shoes. The opportunities for fresh voices and new legacies are the silver lining to this story. All of the departing teachers had a first year here at one point or another, and the new arrivals have the exciting opportunity to form their own lasting legacies.

Thank you again, staff members, for your service in and around the building, and we wish you success and happiness in your post-Cedar Falls lives.
