Salinas on duty in Germany

Salinas is a utilities system craftsman assigned to the 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron.

He is the son of Juan S. and Florinda G. Salinas of Barstow.

His wife, Pam, is the daughter of Greg Nestaval of Georgetown, Tx.

Longtime WTSS employee retires

It was with bittersweet emotions that friends and co-workers of West Texas State School Juvenile Correction Officer Manuela Dunham came together on Aug. 30, to bid her "Happy Retirement."

Manuela "Mona" Dunham served the Texas Youth Commission and West Texas State School for more than 22 years. She began her career with TYC in 1979 working in the dormitories as what was then a "Houseparent" and is now a Juvenile Correction Officer. Dunham worked in the Education department for the last several years.

At a luncheon held in her honor, Dunham was presented with an engraved clock, a silver charm pendant with earrings, and a plaque recognizing her 22 years of dedication and service to West Texas State School, the Texas Youth Commission and the troubled youth of Texas.

"I know my co-workers join me in saying that you are an outstanding woman to know and work with," said co-worker Marcela Marenco. "You have made lifelong friendships through the years and it saddens us all to see you go, but we know you're ready and anxious for the beginning of the rest of your life," she said.

Dunham could always be counted on for a "Good Morning" and a smile. Her vast experience and dedication to the Texas Youth Commission and West Texas State School will be greatly missed.
