BSC Boomers will be missed

BSC is caught up in the national exodus of baby boomers from the workplace. Reports say up to 10,000 boomers retire every day in the U.S. The 15* we’ll lose here by the end of 2016 are more than enough. These folks are part of the longest working, most youthful, idealistic and largest generation we’ve known. And at BSC, they take with them a combined 411 years of experience.

President Skogen often notes that we are preparing students for a world we can’t even imagine. It’s likely our retirees couldn’t imagine today’s world when they began their careers here. The tenure of 50-year-retiree Mike McCormack alone spans from abacuses to smart phones!

Through every change that came along, these long timers did right by our students, employees and community, making a difference in the lives of thousands. We are grateful to them all.
