The Seminole Heights United Methodist Preschool Committee and Seminole Heights United Methodist Church would like to share that after a successful 17 years as Director of Seminole Heights United Methodist Preschool (SHUMPS), Mrs. Christine Messer will be retiring effective December 31, 2021. Her dedication to providing a safe, loving, Christian-based early education experience to the families and employees of SHUMPS has been a blessing to the church and community. During Mrs. Christine’s time as Director, she transformed SHUMPS into the Preschool of choice for the Seminole Heights community and positioned SHUMPS for success for many years to come. We are confident that the high-quality teachers and staff she has recruited over the years will carry on her legacy of excellence. We are grateful for her many years of faithful service and wish her all the best during her well-deserved retirement.
The Preschool and Staff-Parish Relations Committees will start the search for a new SHUMPS Director soon and plan to have the new Director in place by mid-December. During the search process, we will seek feedback from families, staff, and community members. We know we can never replace Mrs. Christine, and we have nothing but gratitude for her faithful service to our community, church, and school. There will be many chances to celebrate Mrs. Christine’s hard work, and we hope you will join us in showing her how much she means to our church and community.
