On Friday, September 30, 2011, Menifee County School employees said "bon voyage" to one of their own - Charlie Sorrell. Mr. Sorrell had worked as a custodian keeping the Menifee County Schools looking good for thirty-six years. Throughout those years, he saw countless students begin school, grow up, become adults, and some even come back to work alongside him in the schools in various positions including teacher, counselor, and secretary.
For his retirement party, faculty and staff from Botts Elementary, Menifee Elementary K-8, Menifee County High School, and Central Office came together with food, gifts, and fond farewell thoughts for Mr. Sorrell. In fact, Friday, September 30th was designated Charlie Sorrell day, and everyone wore UK attire because Charlie supported the UK Wildcats and was always up-to-date on the latests Wildcat news.
As one of the Menifee school employees shared, " Charlie was a calm and pleasant person who kept us looking good whether he was buffing floors or directing traffic. He was always there to give a helping hand." This sentiment seemed to be shared by many who hope Mr. Sorrell's retirement is an enjoyable one but will miss his presence in the school system.
Charlie...WE MISS YOU ALREADY!
