Bobby Burkett was honored at the June 16th meeting of the Jal School Board upon his retirement as maintenance supervisor. He had worked for Jal Schools for 27 years, and had previously worked for El Paso Natural Gas for nearly as long as he worked for the Jal School District. He was honored with a birthday party, with his maintenance crew and the district’s administrative staff attending. He received a very nice watch. A long-time Jal resident, Bobby and his wife Judy will be moving to Midland, Texas.
