Retiring school employees honored

At the May meeting of the Rossford Board of Education, Superintendent Dan Creps recognized seven retiring school employees.
They are Dawn Haas, Eagle Point fourth grade teacher, hired in 1990; Paula Haas, Glenwood kindergarten teacher, hired in 1980; Ed Howard, junior high math teacher and athletic director, hired in 1984; Lance Taylor, junior high social studies teacher and coach, hired in 1986; Valerie Washeck, high school and junior high English teacher, coach and advisor, hired in 1981; Chris Werbylo, high school and junior high teacher and coach, hired in 2003, and Susan Lowry, high school English teacher, hired in 2000.
They were presented with tokens of appreciation for their service to the district.
“They have done an outstanding job for the students each and every day, teaching and serving as role models,” the superintendent said. “We are certainly happy for all of them, but we are sad to see them go.”
“There is more than 200 years experience added together among these seven people–you don’t replace that kind of expertise and leadership over night.”
Also at the meeting, Mike Fallis, learning center coordinator, was honored. He is leaving his position, overseeing Rossford’s before and after school enrichment program, because he was promoted to supervise all of the learning centers in Wood County schools.

Rossford lies at the heart of the Crossroads of America, an area experiencing tremendous economic growth, located at the crossroads of Interstate 75 and the Ohio Turnpike. The city's population of approximately 6,000 is primarily a mix of descendants of Polish, Czechoslovakian, German and Ukrainian workers who came from Pennsylvania to work at the glass plant, now Pilkington.

Rossford was incorporated as a village in 1939 and as a city in 1971. The City is a municipal corporation which operates under its own charter and is governed by a mayor and seven-member City Council. Rossford is served by full-time police and part-time fire departments, dispatched from the neighboring Village of Walbridge.

The City maintains a Community Recreation Center and three parks, one of which,Veterans Memorial Park, features a seasonal marina along with picnic areas and diamonds and courts for baseball, tennis, basketball and volleyball.

Rossford has three elementary schools, Glenwood, Indian Hills and Eagle Point, a junior high and high school and All Saints parochial school for grades pre-kindergarten through eight.

The city boasts a public library and many service and community organizations such as the Rossford Business Association, Lions Club and Veterans of Foreign Wars. Its Rossford Community Service League sponsors annual activities such as a Valentine's Day Dance, Easter egg hunt, Halloween, Memorial Day parades and their Christmas tree lighting.
