DPSB staff celebrated with a retirement lunch for Richard Wilkinson who has retired as Purchasing Agent after 30+ years of service to the DeSoto Parish School System (after a brief start as an auditor with the DeSoto Parish Sales and Use Tax Commission). Mr. Wilkinson was tasked to keep DPSB in compliance with the many requirements that go along with governmental purchasing. There is not a DPSB facility in use today that Richard didn't have a part in the plan to build and equip. Thank you for a job well done and we wish you well in your retirement!
