Congratulation to Mrs. Sue Brack upon her retirement from Walton County School District!
Mrs. Brack graduated from Paxton High School, Class of 1958. She began her career at Walton County School District in March 1990 in the ESE Department covering for Johnnie Kay Ealum who was on maternity leave.
From the ESE Department she went to Paxton High School in the summer of 1990 as a career aide. She only worked at Paxton for a few months when there came an opening at Walton Middle School for an 8th grade instructional aide.
After working at Walton Middle School for a year, she transferred to Paxton High School as Bookkeeper where she remained for five years. Mrs. Brack reminisces that this was a great opportunity to work at the school where she received her education. She transferred to the district office as a bookkeeper in September of 1997.
Mrs. Brack has been employed at the Tivoli complex district office for nearly 22 years. In her position at the district office she has had the privilege of working with several different Coordinators and Supervisors. Mrs. Brack says she is known as the “budget lady.” She shared that she has had the opportunity to work with many different employees throughout the district as she executed her responsibilities ordering textbooks, library media, science labs and school improvement.
Mrs. Brack stated she has witnessed much growth in the 29 years she has worked in the district, under several different Superintendents. When she began in 1990, Mossy Head School, South Walton High School, Emerald Coast Middle School, and Van R. Butler Elementary School did not exist. During these years she saw the Freeport community increase from two schools to three.
“After working for 28 years in banking, transferring to a position in education was very challenging. I have learned a lot about education and how everything works together for the students in Walton County” she said. Mrs. Brack also served as bookkeeper for the Walton Education Foundation for 20 years.
“As I retire and look back on my many years in the district, I have made many new friends and memories that will last a lifetime.”
Superintendent Hughes and the entire Walton County School District thank Mrs. Brack for her dedicated service, and wish her many happy, healthy years enjoying retirement!
