Celebrating our Retirees

District Celebrates 2020-2021 Retirees

At the June 15, 2021 Board of Education meeting, nine professionals were recognized for their wonderful careers in education. 

Board trustees read inspiring vignettes shared by colleagues, creating poignant and illustrative images of long careers of service and dedication  to the district and our students. Each of our retiring employees made an impact on the lives of countless students and on their peers. The examples of collegiality and inspiration generated rousing enthusiasm, applause, and even some warm laughs from the gathered audience.
