A Fond Farewell

After eight years at Vita, preceded by 40 years in secondary education, Peggy Blanco has retired from teaching at Vita. Over the years, Peggy had been both an English as a Second Language and a language arts/social studies GED instructor. With an unwavering dedication to helping students achieve their goals, Peggy has been a true inspiration to hundreds of students. Her grateful students presented her with a handmade commemorative artwork piece with their thumbprints as leaves on a tree, inscribed “May you be proud of the work you do, the person you are, and the difference you make.” Peggy certainly has made a difference in countless lives and she will be missed by students, teachers, and staff alike.
