Thomson and the 2023-2024 school year office aides celebrate Thomson’s last day with dips and cake at the end of the day.

Manitou Springs High School’s front office secretary, Stacy Thomson, will be leaving her position on Feb. 8 to move to Scottsdale, Arizona to be closer to family. 

Thomson decided to make the move to be closer to parents and daughter, Ashlyn Thomson, who is currently attending Grand Canyon University. “My daughter and parents live in Arizona, so my husband and I decided that we want to be closer to family,” Thomson said. “We love the Scottsdale area and are excited for new adventures.” 

Many students will miss Thomson but are happy for her in this new adventure. “Stacy just has this energy that I feel like it’s so hard to replace, and she’s known some of us since we were really young, so it’s really sad to have her leaving,” office aide Shaena Vigil (11) said. 

Thomson will be back to help out on  Feb. 14 and Feb. 15 and will be helping to train Cat Albanese, the new secretary, on Feb. 8 and Feb. 9. “I think that Stacy staying for a little while to help Albanese get into the groove will make it a more smooth process,” Vigil said. 

Although Thomson is excited for her new adventure, she will miss the students and wishes them the best. “No one can compare to this group of kids. You make everyday so unique, fun, and memorable, and I love watching you all find success in different ways,” Thomson said. “Continue to be a community of students that helps each other and supports each other. I will miss you all more than words can express.” 

Thomson is also sad about moving away from many of her friends she has made at MSHS. “I’ve enjoyed the friendships that I have been able to build during my time here with the staff and because of all of you I want to come to work everyday,” Thomson said. “I am so lucky to have worked with you all.”
