Marion Guilfoy is calling it a career after two decades at Huntington High School. The longtime clerical worker is retiring at the end of the day on Friday.
Ms. Guilfoy began her career in the district in the high school attendance office in April 1997. She has come full circle and is ending her time in Huntington in that same office.
The longtime district employee is looking forward to retiring. She recently sold her home in East Northport and purchased a co-op in Melville, happily putting her snow shoveling days in the past.
“I have been Marion’s office roommate on and off for the past 20 years,” Carol Andreski said. “She is such a dedicated worker and keeps everyone on task. Marion sets the standards high and expects everyone to have the same work ethic that she has. We’ve grown to be great friends and I will deeply miss her.”
Ms. Guilfoy has worked closely with high school administrators Francine Banyon, Mary Pisacano, Marcia Usdin, Jarrett Stein, Angelo Noce, Brenden Cusack and Joseph DiTroia over the years. “She will be impossible to replace,” Mrs. Andreski said
“In the middle of my time here at the high school, I worked for Jarrett Stein, the assistant principal at the time,” Ms. Guilfoy said. “After he moved to another school, I stayed on for a year doing all the paperwork for the position. In 2010, I needed a 12 month position so I went back to the attendance office.”
The soon to be retiree said she found working over the summer on the high school master schedule “to be a challenge and I enjoyed it very much.”
When Ms. Guilfoy walks out of the high school on Friday she will do so with many fond memories and with a spring in her step, excited for what the future holds.
“I’m retiring to spend more time with my children and grandchildren,” Ms. Guilfoy said. “I will miss all my co-workers. I am truly blessed to work with such a wonderful group of people.”
