Saranac Community Schools is excited, and sad at the same time, to announce the retirement of Shawn Austin effective tomorrow September 30th. Shawn started at Saranac Community Schools in August of 1998 in Food Service. She moved into the Transportation Department in November of 2000. So for nearly 21 years, she has been running transportation here at Saranac. The district has been fortunate to have Shawn as part of the school family. We will certainly miss her dedication and hard work each and every day. However, even more importantly her positive attitude, smile, and friendship will be deeply missed. Shawn has brought a smile to work every day since August of 1998. Please join us in congratulating Shawn as she moves into retirement to spend time with her family. We wish her nothing but the best.
