In her 31 years in the district, that's nearly 2,000 students- more than the combined populations of Eden Valley and Watkins. Her official duties include being the principal's secretary, and she also is responsible for all state data reporting for each student in the district, preschool through sixth grade. Besides that, Frank also acts as nurse when the school nurse is elsewhere. I take care of [the stu- dents]. Take temps, give meds, sometimes a hug," Frank said. Lori Unterberger has begun training for Frank's positions. But it will take her a while to fill her shoes. Unterberger has worked at the Elementary School for several years, in the copy room and as a special ed assistant. "She's going to do a great job, I know," Frank said of Unterberger. Frank will miss her interaction with parents, many of whom were students themselves a generation ago. She will still see them, at con- certs and other events, but it won't be the same. Although she has no specific plans for retirement, Frank looks forward to traveling with her hus- band Elmer and spending time with her five grandchildren and tending her flower gardens.
