Staff Retirements 2017

Fred Chester (below, seated) is retiring from USM after more than 16 years as a bus driver. “USM is a wonderful place to work,” he said. “I love being with the students because they tell me jokes.” Chester’s son, Mike, is a USM graduate of the Class of 1979. Upon retirement, he’s looking forward to continuing his volunteer work.

Jerry Powell (below, in front of bus) is retiring from USM after serving for more than 10 years as a bus driver. He will miss interacting with the students and teachers, but is proud to end his time on a high note with no accidents. He is excited to visit as many national parks as he can. “I’ve got brothers in Arizona and Florida, so I have places to go and people to visit,” he said.
