Life takes you to unexpected places. Love brings you home.” – Melissa McClone, Mistletoe Magic

For Mrs. Linda True, Administrative Assistant at West for thirty-one years, this quote truly describes her time at West. This year will mark her last time here as she plans on retiring at the conclusion of the school year.

Before she came to West, Mrs. True worked in a few different jobs, but it was when her friend informed her about an opening at West that Mrs. True ended up coming to this school.

She has since enjoyed and cherished her time at West stating that over the years it “started to become my family.”

Over the past thirty-one years, Mrs. True has attended many of West’s student activities, often working the ticket booth at football games, watching numerous theatre productions, and going to pep assemblies throughout the year.

I think my favorite thing is all the people I work with. I love the people here.” She says. “I’m going to miss everybody. A lot.”

In regards to her retirement, Mrs. True is looking forward to “getting up after the sun is up, gardening, golfing, bike riding, travelling, [and] spending time with family and friends.”

If there is one thing she’d tell her younger self it would be “that this is not just a little part-time job that you’re going to have for a couple years while your kids are little — it’s going to be career.”

Mrs. True hopes that Seniors will be “open to change” as life has its way of turning to the unexpected. As we send off the Seniors, we also recognize all the contributions Mrs. True has made to West over the years, and we sincerely thank her for her time at West.
