Celebrating 80 years of school crossing service

Wellington Shire Council recently celebrated the dedication of three employees, who have chalked up a combined 80 years of service at the organisation.

In a statement, the Council said all three staffers performed one of the most important jobs in the Shire – as school crossing supervisors.

Jennifer Young (pictured, above with Mayor, Ian Bye) has served an incredible 45 years with the Council, after first joining 1978. Throughout her career, Jennifer has guided three generations of school kids to safety and inspired family members to follow in her footsteps, her journey is nothing short of inspiring, the Council said.

Kerryn Bassett (pictured, above) has been a dedicated member of the Wellington Shire Council’s school crossings team in Yarram for an incredible 15 years and counting; while Lynette Holmes (main photo) has 20 years and 9 months under her belt since 2003.

“This hometown hero has not only kept our kids safe but has also carried on a five-generation legacy in Sale,” the Council said.

“A massive shoutout to these heroes for their commitment to safety and the Wellington community. Here’s to many more years!”
