North Central ESD and the AESD will say farewell to Eldene Wall after 29 years of service. Eldene has served as the executive assistant to three superintendents: Dr. Gene Sharratt, Dr. Rich McBride, and Dr. Michelle Price. During her tenure, she raised four boys, earned a bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration/Marketing and a Master’s degree in Nonprofit Management and Leadership. She has also earned the National Association of Educational Office Professionals Professional Standards Certificate: The Certified Educational Office Employee Certificate.

Eldene has mentored and nurtured countless people across the state and nation in her work with the Washington Association of Educational Office Professionals where she served as president in 2007-2008 and the National Association of Educational Office Professionals where she has served in numerous leadership roles including office as the current Northwest Area Director.

During her time at NCESD, Eldene was instrumental in the start-up and on-going work of the North Central Education Foundation that has expanded from just a few teacher grants to 100 in 2018. She has also taken a leadership role in the ESD’s community outreach with Christmas projects and school supply give-away. Her reach far extends beyond the ESD with her involvement on the Community Concert Board and in her church.

Eldene has been a coach, cheerleader, supporter and tireless advocate of everyone she has worked with. She has a passion for making a difference in the lives of others and will truly be missed. She will continue to serve a role with the NCESD Foundation. Congratulations, Eldene.

You are welcome to celebrate with her at an open house on Wednesday, June 26 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at Pyabus Market, 3 N. Worthen Street, Wenatchee, WA.
