MASBO SAYS Agnes Gaultier retired as Secretary Treasurer of Prairie Rose School Division on November 28th, 2014 after 38 years of dedicated commitment to education finance! She began working in the division office September, 1976 and became Secretary Treasurer July 1st, 1987. During her tenure, she worked with six different superintendents, too many Board Chairs to count and helped guide the school division through the amalgamation of Midland School Division #25 and White Horse Plains School Division #20 in July, 2002. MASBO also benefitted from Agnes' vast knowledge and experience throughout her career when she served as Regional Director from 1994 to 1998 and President in 1999-2000. Agnes was the "go to" person for guidance and advice on any operations topic. Her vast knowledge and wisdom were valued by all and will be greatly missed. Agnes found MASBO invaluable; being able to call on colleagues for support, advice and information was paramount over the years. She stated, "The organization has grown tenfold; we are way more involved in the administration of a school division and the diversity of responsibilities has evolved to also include human resources, technology and workplace, safety and health areas, to name just a few. The job of secretary treasurer is also so much broader now." Agnes is looking forward to travelling with friends this spring to France and plans on gardening and spending more time with her two sons and their families. No doubt there will be a few more golf games along the way too! We wish her well with her next "career" choice. Anne Malyon who served as our MASBO president in 2006-2007, retired October 31, 2014. She started working with school divisions as a Chartered Accountant in public practice in the early 1980s, as an auditor of the Portage la Prairie School Division. In November 1994, she joined Pine Creek School Division as Secretary Treasurer and then in August 2004, joined Border Land School Division as Secretary Treasurer. She was on the MASBO Executive, starting in 2001 as the Finance Co-Chair, Rural, and then in 2005 was elected to the position of President Elect and then served as President. As well, she served on numerous other committees long before and after, she was a member of the MASBO Executive. She says, "Membership in MASBO is truly a gift that keeps on giving. There are always opportunities to serve or participate and each member can decide how little or how much they wish to participate. The wealth of information that is just a phone call away is endless and one or two phone calls or emails will quickly get you enough information to get you on your way to resolving your current obstacle and completing the project. Thank you to all of the past and present MASBO members that have provided me with assistance over the years." ■ 18 * Read this issue online at
