Wondra Dale retires after 25 years service to town
Wondra Dale has retired from her position with the Town of Prentiss after 25 years of service.
Dale worked under the administration of three mayors: Joe Thomas Miller, Tut Williams, and the current mayor, Charley Dumas.
For 14 years Dale greeted customers at the front desk until the retirement of then clerk Carolyn McRaney.
She has served in the town clerk’s position for 11 years.
“This is a very bittersweet time, said Dale. “I loved my job and never once minded coming to work.”
“The mayor and board of aldermen have had confidence in me and stood behind me through the years. That is priceless,” she added.
A retirement reception was held Friday for family and friends in honor of Dale.
Mayor Charley Dumas presented Dale with a gift for 25 years of hard work and dedication to the Town of Prentiss.
“We truly appreciate everything Wondra has done for our town. We will miss her greatly, but know that she is ready to spend some quality time with her family; especially her grandchildren,” said Dumas.
Missy Jones will now assume the position as town clerk.
The new face of the front office is Kimberly Reynolds Mason.
Mason is a native of Prentiss and is married to Stephen Mason of Hattiesburg. They have two daughters, Leeyah and Sophia.
