Best Wishes Edna!


We like to honor the outstanding individuals, families and employees of MCBDD and sometimes that means saying good-bye to those who are moving on.  Edna Fenton was recognized by the MCBDD board recently for her 21 years as a bus aide.  She accepted her certificate from Superintendent Bill Whitacre, and in return, she shared a poem she wrote about her time here. 

My name is Edna.

My friends call me Ed.

In August of 1998 I came to MCBDD

and was hired the next month

I have worked here for 21 years

But I began in Trumbull County

I was sitting with one of my kids, Mike

He touched my upper lip.

and said, "you have a mustache."

I said, "Yes, I do."

He smiled, hugged me and said, "I love you"

Mike melted my heart

That is why I work on the bus.

I am truly BLESSED!

I have no kids of my own.

But these clients are "my kids"

and I will miss them all!

I am going on a new adventure with the Lord.

I hope to spend more time at church,

writing poems, reading a good book,

or doing a jigsaw puzzle.

Wherever the Lord leads me, I will go.

We at the MCBDD wish you all the happiness retirement has to offer you, Edna!!!
