"Secretaries Rule!"

by Andrew Jones

Wednesday, April 23, 2014, is Administrative Professionals Day (right in the middle of Administrative Professionals Week).

Eight years ago Dave Arnold, a custodian at Brownstown Elementary School in Illinois, published a column titled "Secretaries Rule!" on the website of the National Education Association. It honored secretaries in general and his school's secretary, Shelly Thomason, in particular.

"My neighborhood mechanic's five-year-old granddaughter use to help him file reports and bills at his garage office," Dave wrote then. "I commented to the mechanic that he certainly had a good secretary. He didn't reply vocally, but his smile said it all. That little girl grew up strong and wise. Today, she is our school secretary, Shelly Thomason ... She is one of the many reasons we honor our secretaries."

Here's wishing all administrative professionals the recognition they deserve.
