John & Ruth Bain

Ruth Bain started to work at Happy Camp High School February 1978 and had experience as an attendance clerk and aide before beginning her position as secretary. Now, after 34 years in the High School she has decided to retire and visit more with family and grandchildren, which are her delight, and do gardening and handiwork at which she excels.

Happy Camp High School teachers and staff, past and present as well as representatives from the Siskiyou Union High School District gathered at the Happy Camp Grange for a farewell. Retired teachers such as Paul Trestrail, Terry & Roberta Everett, Hokinson represented by Diann and John Kufner were also there and spoke to the value of Ruth’s efforts in the school over the 34 years she faithfully and loyally kept the office. Bob Seaman shared how vital to the operation of the Happy Camp Grange Ruth has been also. Angelika Brown, new high school principal this year, presented Ruth with a beautiful crystal award.

A song was sung in Ruth’s honor by Patti Sherman, Tom Evertsen , Casey Chambers, Paige Bovey Kevin Brown Denise Bearding, Alyssa Garcia , Elizabeth Laney Nena Creasey, Ed Sherman, Chris and Angelika Brown, Principal of Happy Camp High School.

Ruth has been recognized for her work in the community in the past. In May, 1995 Ruth received a commendation from the AMERICAN Legion and Auxiliary, given in recognition of outstanding volunteerism in our community and country. It included the note, ”Ruth you have our gratitude an sincere appreciation for donating priceless help to those in need.
