Housekeeper dedicates 45 years of service to District

Posted on June 6, 2016, in Lancer Life


During the Lancer Legacy Banquet, Superintendent Richard Scaletta honored Dorothy Armagost for serving 45 years in the District.

Armagost has been working as a part-time housekeeper at McKean Elementary since she was first hired in 1971.

“I love my job,” Armagost said. “It’s a good school district, and I really love seeing the little kids and watching them grow up.”

Armagost has only been employed within General McLane School District — when she was hired to work at McKean Elementary, she earned her first job.

“The first time I subbed, I received a one-day pay and went and bought myself a pair of jeans! I never thought I’d be still working here forty-five years later.”

Armagost has six children and 15 grandchildren. During her free time, she enjoys watching all sports and is a Cleveland sports fan.

“I really like the Browns, even though they have been losing,” said Armagost, who is rooting for the Cavaliers to win the 2016 NBA Finals. “If they win, it would make Cleveland spectacular.”

She received a Superintendent’s Medallion for her commitment to the District at the 2016 Lancer Legacy Banquet.
