Holy Rosary School in Duryea recently honored teacher Joan Dowd, who retired at the end of the school year after 42 years of teaching, first at St. Mary's Assumption School in Pittston and later at Holy Rosary. A parade of students, graduates, parents, her family members and other well-wishers passed by the school in Duryea to honor Dowd. Her second grade class serenaded her from the back of a flat bed truck and the City of Pittston proclaimed June 6, 2020 as Mrs. Dowd Day.
