A black-and-white themed surprise retirement gala was held in honor of Stephanie Henry on Aug. 10. The successful, momentous event was hosted by her children, Harry and Brittney. More than 100 of Henry’s closest relatives, friends and former students and co-workers united to commemorate her 32 years of dedicated service to the Bladen and Columbus county public schools. While the guest of honor was adorned
in red, all other guests were asked to wear black and white.
