A salute to Mrs. Clisham

Mrs. Amy Clisham,
Principal's Secretary

It's often been said that if you want to get something done, befriend the secretary. That certainly is the case at Lampeter-Strasburg High School, where a team of secretaries handles the plethora of administrative duties a school creates. One of those fine individuals, Mrs. Amy Clisham, departs today after serving as Mr. Spencer's secretary since the beginning of the 2012 school year. She will be pursuing a new business opportunity with her husband.

In charge of everything from Mr. Spencer's schedule to oversight of finances pertaining to clubs, activities, and scholarships, Mrs. Clisham will be truly missed by the entire high school community. Several of her fellow secretaries offered their thoughts on her departure.

"She's leaving us in tears by leaving."-- Ms. Keri Scheid, Attendance Secretary

"The thing I will miss the most about Mrs. Clisham is her upbeat personality and her smile.  It has been a joy to work with her for the last four years and she will be greatly missed." -- Mrs. Sheila Raymond, Athletic Secretary

The office has been less productive today
with a constant stream of  visiting faculty and
staff  coming to celebrate 
Mrs. Clisham's
tenure at L-S and enjoy some sweet treats.
"When I first came here, she always had a smile on her face, and she could always make me laugh. That's what I'll miss." -- Mrs. Shannon Spahr, Receptionist

"Mrs. Clisham has been a HUGE asset to all of us in the high school and she will be greatly missed. I wish her the best in all that she does." -- Mrs. Ruth Toms, Guidance Secretary

"Mrs. Clisham was one of the first people to welcome me when I started at L-S last year.She's a great lady and we will truly miss her." -- Mrs. Allison Breneman, Guidance Secretary

On a personal note, as the treasurer of several clubs, Mrs. Clisham has always made bookkeeping as easy, painless, and enjoyable experience as possible, and visiting her desk to sign paperwork was always a bright spot in any day.
