Loretta Smith, Blue Hill Consolidated School Secretary has been chosen as the Maine Principals Association Secretary of the Year!

Loretta has served Blue Hill Consolidated school for 38 years. Over the course of Loretta’s 38 year career, she has worked with 9 principals, 7 superintendents, countless teachers, ed techs, and families. Loretta has taken the school through multiple rebuilds, renovations, and shifts in technology to transition the school from paper and pencil to computers and spreadsheets. Loretta is a hub of information for all families and school staff. She is a trusted and loved part of Union 93. One of the most commonly used phrases at Blue Hill Consolidated is “Ask Loretta, she’ll know.”

Besides the day to day tasks of being a front office secretary, Loretta has her hands in most of the projects the school takes part in. Just a few of these are: holiday food baskets, fuel assistance programs, Christmas angels program, winter clothing drives, backpack meal program, and sunshine club. Loretta is truly a staple at BHCS.

Far too often we are busy with the hustle and bustle of everyday school to recognize the people that have committed their lives to this service. Loretta Smith is monumentally deserving of this award. She is a shining example of a life of service to multiple generations of our youth. This award is an exciting opportunity to recognize one of Blue Hill’s finest people. 

Holly Blair, the Executive Director for the MPA will be coming to Blue Hill on March 31st to give Loretta her award.
