Bethel’s secretaries are a huge part of this school. They contribute to a big part of Bethel High school’s backbone, along with our principal, counselor, and vice principal. Every day, the secretaries have a ton of work to do and they are constantly dealing with high schoolers who don’t listen and argue with them over things that will end up helping the students in the long run. Although many of Bethel’s students have talked to one or both of the women sitting in the office, not very many students actually know them as well as you could.
