The Newport Special School District faculty, staff and students are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of a long-time member of our Greyhound family, Thelma Runion, who passed away on Thursday, January 6. At the time of her death, Mrs. Runion had been serving the district as an interventionist for our special education students.
Mrs. Runion has served our district, community and most importantly our students for over 3 decades. Her passion for the students and her fellow staff members was one of a pure heart and joy for service. On Thursday and Friday nights, you could always get a smile from her, as you would enter Legendary Greyhound Stadium and she would take your ticket.
For over 30 years, Mrs. Runion has been making an impact in countless students’ lives. She was a special person who will be greatly missed.
