After four years of high school and 24 years at ETHS, Robin Harkness has chosen to retire and move onto new opportunities.

A diligent worker in Student Activities, the Registrar’s Office and both Central and East Libraries, Harkness had the opportunity to form many close relationships, which is what she will miss most about ETHS. “When I first started, it was like a family. ETHS [staff] was a community of people that worked together,” Harkness said. “It was a very nice, enjoyable place to work.”

Harkness has had many great memories at ETHS, but some of her favorite are working in the Registrar’s Office with one of her closest friends.

“We worked in the libraries together, and then we both ended up working in the Registrar’s Office together. That’s definitely one of my best memories. It was a good friendship and working relationship,” Harkness said.

Harkness’ absence will be felt within the Evanston community as she continues on to a new job.

“I’ll still be working, doing my retirement job. I will just be doing something outside of ETHS. But I will miss a lot of the staff,” Harkness said.
