Whether you know him as Mark or Marky or Mr. North -

John C. Thomas Retires
John C. Thomas, retired
after 35  years at Ardmore!
It will be hard to imagine the Community Services Department without John.  His loyal dedication and unwavering commitment to Ardmore's mission was indispensable.  John is looking forward to playing and writing music, frequenting used book stores and not knowing what day it is! 
We are proud of the longevity of the Ardmore staff and know the consistency and high quality of services they provide make a difference in the lives of the people we serve.
  Out of 183 employees and contract providers,
Ardmore has 32 employees/providers who have been here 10-19 years; 15 that have been here 20-29 years and 3 that have been here for over 30 years!

Best of luck, John.  We will miss you!
