TASD custodian Bill Black retires after 14 years


Mr. Bill Black began working for the Tyrone Area School District in May 2001 as a substitute custodian, and became a full time custodian in 2002. He will retire at the end of this school year with 14 years of service to the district.

Before he began at TASD, Black spent much of his time working on the family dairy farm.  Black has lived on the family farm in Sinking Valley his entire life.

Black grew up attending the Tyrone schools.  He is a proud 1965 graduate of Tyrone High School. According to Black, his graduating class was the largest in Tyrone High School history.

Black’s responsibilities at Tyrone include working the second shift custodial staff in the kindergarten and administrative wing of the elementary school building to ensure that the children have a clean environment in which to learn.

“I enjoyed getting to know and interacting with the great staff that make up the school district. Meeting the challenges of the job made each day a little bit different,” said Black.

Although Black will miss his time at TASD, he plans on having a great retirement.

“I plan to enjoy life at a slower pace, do more volunteer works and attend more Tyrone High sporting events,” noted Black.

Outside of work Black enjoys being a spectator of athletics at the various sporting events to support the team and completing volunteer work in the community.

“I was very proud to be a Tyrone High graduate and am glad to have had the opportunity to finish up my working years in the school district,” said Black.
