Retiree Spotlights That Inspire

Loyal. Dedicated. Role Model. The retirees of BASD have impacted the lives of our students in many positive ways. They may have been a principal, teacher, custodian, or a nurse to name a few, but each of them made a difference in our children’s lives. We celebrate those who dedicated their careers to BASD.
