Town and Country, MO. Sept 6, 2019 – Darrell Boland, who served as a Facility Technician at Kirk Day School since 1993, began his retirement on August 29th after 26 years of service to the school. His care and dedication have played a critical role in maintaining the building and improving the day-to-day experience for all who entered it.
For his last day, students and teachers held a celebration to honor Boland and his many years of service to the school. Students from each grade level gave him cards and shared words to express their appreciation.
“Thank you so much for all you do for the school. It always looks so nice, and the grass at the front of the school looks great,” said Oluwadara Akinyede, 5th grade.
Another student read a compiled list of the top ten things the 4th grade class wanted to thank Mr. Boland for. Later, a 6th grader shared an acrostic poem his class wrote using the letters of Mr. Boland’s first name. Each letter was used to describe one of his many qualities to be remembered.
Due to his love of fishing, the school also gifted Boland with gift cards to Bass Pro. Shops and, just in case he is unable to catch something, Yellowstone Café.
During retirement, Boland is looking forward to spending more time with his five grandchildren and keeping himself busy pursuing his passions in fishing and home renovation. The Kirk Day School community will greatly miss him.
