A famous face in the food service sector of Mineral Point Schools has retired following her 33 years of service.

Connie Galle has been with the Mineral Point Unified School District since August of 1981. Her dedication and devotion to the students and co-workers was evident and has been noted in every performance review. She was always diligent in her efforts and went above and beyond to be kind and helpful.

Over the last three plus decades, she had greeted countless kids, including her own, and had enjoyed watching them grow. Connie’s service began at the middle school and she has also worked for many years at the high school. Recently she moved to the elementary where she has enjoyed lots of little smiles, especially those of her grandchildren.

She has expressed her appreciation and gratitude and is thankful to all the great people she had the pleasure of working with over the years.

“I have enjoyed this part-time job and made some lifelong friends. After all, it’s never the job you miss as much as the people. Thank you for everything,” she said.

Connie was honored at the school board meeting Wednesday, December 10 and is shown here with Board President, Bob Oberhauser.
