Our colleague Jenny Marshall is taking early retirement and leaves us today...

Jenny has been an amazing colleague who has helped me personally with the Education Leeds Board and been one of the team pioneering Customer Service Excellence and our achievement of our Times 100; Best Places to Work in the Public Sector Award. Jenny is leaving us to live her dream having, as she said this morning, spent the best eight years of her working life here with us in Education Leeds which she described as the best place she has ever worked! We will all miss Jenny's bright and enthusiastic persona and her sheer enthusiasm, passion, determination and hard work. She is a brilliant example of what Education Leeds stands for and I personally, and all those colleagues who know her and love her, will really miss her.

As Jenny reminded us this morning of the message at the top of this blog...
"Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. So love the people who treat you right, forget about the ones who don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it."
