Officially, Georgia Dinneen is retired from her job as an instructor at NRHEG High School.
But early this month, she was coaxed out of retirement for a few days.
As she has done 10 times since 2004, Dinneen accompanied NRHEG students and other chaperones on what has become the school’s annual trip to Washington, D.C.
“Our intention in the beginning was to go every other year,” said Dinneen. “This trip was our fourth year in a row.”
After retiring last spring, Dinneen was asked by NRHEG Administration to go on one last trip to D.C.
“That’s why I did it,” she said. “It was an especially enjoyable trip to me just because I got to spend time again with teenagers. They are what I miss most about retirement.”
