McLean The Churchill Road Elementary School staff honored Margaret Liappis at a reception on Friday, Dec. 9. Liappis retired last year after 31 years of service in Churchill’s cafeteria. Liappis was presented with a framed print of Churchill Road School, signed by members of the staff, and was honored in a special video of students and staff, which highlighted their favorite memories of her. The school’s cafeteria is also going to be named after Mrs. Liapipis. She has seen many generations of Churchill Road students pass through the lunch line and she made it a point to learn all their names. Over the years, her work and dedication has been recognized by Fairfax County Public Schools on several occasions with the Outstanding Performance Award.
