A standing ovation was held for Margaret Cadle, special education assistant, for her retirement after 69 years in education.
Cadle was surprised to see staff members joined in the front of the school and forming two lines for Cadle to walk through. She was also surprised with flowers, balloons, and a limousine ride to a party celebrating her service and the end of the school year.
When asked to make a speech, Cadle looked out to the crowd and said “I love you all.”
Cadle has worked with Township High School District 214 for 49 years and held the postion as District 214’s longest serving staff member. She worked as an English teacher at Wheeling, Forest View, and Prospect High Schools before retiring in 1986. She returned to WHS as a special education assistant.
Cadle has also served as a speech team coach and fine and performing arts coordinator.
