(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A well-known face of the St. Joseph School District is leaving.
Monday was Debbie Kunz's last day of work. Kunz was the Director of the district's "Parents as Teachers" program for 20 years.
The program promotes the learning and health of young children by supporting and engaging their parents and caregivers.
At her going away party this afternoon. Kunz had a message for every parent and child whom she has shared this amazing experience with.
"I probably can't say anything without crying," Kunz said. "I will say thank you for years and years of working together and sharing our hearts with St. Joseph. that's about all I can say right now."
The next chapter for Kunz is a change of scenery. Her and her husband are moving to Colorado.
Kunz says she's looking forward to spending more time with her family.
