Last week, the Mercer Island School District Maintenance and Operations department celebrated one of its most grateful employees. Pete Domingo, who worked as a warehouse driver, retired from the job in December. On June 3, the employee reunited with his former co-workers and friends to celebrate his retirement.
During the MISD retirement party, which was held at the Community Center at Mercer View, Domingo said that working for the district was the best job he had ever had.
Maintenance and Custodial Supervisor Keith Ellis returned the sentiment.
"Pete was wonderful. He would go out of his way to help everybody, was very dependable and a great person to work with," Ellis said.
After Domingo retired in December, the department hired school bus driver Sergei Dalakian to take on his responsibilities, which included hauling refuge from the schools, driving the food service truck and delivering district mail.
Domingo worked at MISD for more than seven years. He celebrated his retirement Tuesday with Mercer Island High School Spanish teacher Carrie Sparlin, West Mercer Elementary Principal Pat Blix and fourth grade teacher Nancy Frost, interim Director of Testing and Evaluation Sharon Gillaspie, and Islander Middle School paraprofessional Holly Pratt.
