    Our one and only, Miss Thelma Young will be retiring from Washington Express at the end of 2016 after 16 years of hard work and loyal service. Thelma's smiling face and sassy comments have been a fixture to her colleagues and clients alike with many of them striking up real life friendships over the course of the past decade and a half.
