Andrew M. Tah, former superintendent of schools for the Navajo Nation, bids farewell to colleagues and friends at a retirement dinner Feb. 20 at the Twin Arrows Casino near Flagstaff. Tah's career as an educator spanned more than 40 years of service with the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Navajo Nation. He served as a recreation specialist, coach, teacher, principal, line officer and school superintendent, in addition to heading up the Diné Division of Education for the past five years. Tah promised to be available for future service, if needed by his people, but admitted he was looking forward to a whole bunch of "Saturdays."
