After over 30 years of caring for the learning space at Abrams Elementary School, Larry Peters has decided to hang up his broom for one last time. He was the guest of honor at a celebration in his honor on January 30th. Friends, family members, and current and former Abrams staff were on hand to recognize him for the care and attention he gave to that building and the people who walked its halls over that time period.
As a student, Larry moved into that brand new building to start his 7th grade school year. Perhaps because he was a student when the building was bright and fresh, he did everything in his power to keep it looking that way when he came on board.
While it is not clear if there was any connection, the building was without power for a couple of hours on Wednesday of last week. Even if he had been on the job, there are some things over which even he had no control.
The Oconto Falls School District extends best wishes to Larry and Nancy as he moves forward and leaves behind a great looking building that does not show its age. He plans to spend much more time working with facility related duties with his church.
