Lynne Clunk Retirement

Lynne Clunk Retirement Photo

It is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of our dear friend and colleague, Lynne Clunk. Lynne has served as an Early Learning Coordinator at SST 9 for the past 10 years, and brought with her over 30 years of educational experience.

Lynne has built numerous relationships during her years with the State Support Team, and has earned the respect and friendship of her colleagues across the state as well as our region.  She is an individual who is devoted to doing the right thing for children, and every decision she has made and conversation she has had was based on this. Whether she was working to integrate her expertise into state policy in a workgroup, coaching an early learning administrator about an initiative, or collaborating to create a learning experience for educators, Lynne was passionate about early learning and high quality practices for young children.

Thank you, Lynne, for your high energy, your compassion, your love of learning and for all that you have taught us. We celebrate your upcoming adventures as you embrace your family and friends who will now be the blessed recipients of your self!
