After 32 years of service to the Tyrone Area School District, Human Resources Secretary Fay Golden has decided to retire at the end of the 2021 school year.

According to Tyrone Business Manager John Clark, Golden is well known in the district for her reliability and dedication to her work.

I will miss interacting with her on a daily basis.  I wish her a long, happy retirement. She deserves it!”

“If employees were required to have clearances by God, Fay was going to see that it happened,” joked Clark, “That didn’t always make her popular, it was however the expectation of her position.”

Golden grew up in Port Matilda and graduated from Bald Eagle High School.  She began her working career in Tyrone as a secretary for the Tyrone YMCA and Debora D. Hiller, CPA.

Her career with the Tyrone Area School District started as a secretary for the elementary school principal.  Later she worked as an administrative assistant in the superintendent’s office, before moving to her current position in human resources.

“I will miss the interaction between my co-workers and staff the most when I’m gone,” said Golden. “I have so many memories here at Tyrone that it is difficult to pick even just a few.”

Superintendent Leslie Estep credits Golden’s strong work ethic and knowledge of the details and complexities of her job as her strengths.

“Fay takes her work very seriously and is careful to understand the rules around ensuring that all employees and volunteers have met the proper requirements for clearances, training, and other requirements to work with our staff and students,” said Estep.

But Fay isn’t all business, and Clark will miss her as a friend in the office.

I will miss Fay’s laugh she would find humor in everyday occurrences.  I think the district will miss her deep knowledge of the workings of the position that she has filled for these many years. She has seen many changes in the district”

“I will miss Fay’s laugh she would find humor in everyday occurrences.  I think the district will miss her deep knowledge of the workings of the position that she has filled for these many years. She has seen many changes in the district” said Clark. “The other thing she provided and will continue to is that she is a big Tyrone fan. Her file cabinets and the walls of her office are filled with Tyrone’s successes in many facets of student life. Most, but not all of these, involved her grandkids.”

Lisa Golden, who works with Fay in the district administrative offices, is also Fay’s sister-in-law. Lisa will miss the overall camaraderie with Fay, as well as the excellence Fay brings to the tough human resource position she is leaving.

“Fay’s job in human resources is no easy task, but with her experience and strong work ethic, she keeps everything in order.  I will miss interacting with her on a daily basis.  I wish her a long, happy retirement. She deserves it!” said Lisa Golden.

Gardening, reading, spending time with family, and attending her grandchildren’s activities are all on Golden’s agenda for retirement.

“You can’t be around Fay long without realizing how devoted she is to her family.  I hope she has plenty of time to spend enjoying them in retirement,” said Clark.
