Honoring our 2019-20 Retirees

Honoring our 2019-20 Retirees

Twenty-one soon to be retirees of Monroe School District were honored at the June 8th School Board meeting. The meeting may have been virtual, but that didn't stop the Board from celebrating the combined 480 years of service of the retirees! Fourteen of the retirees have been MSD employees for 25+ years! A huge thank you to these retirees for their many years of dedication and unwavering commitment to education. We wish them all the best as they start their well-earned retirements.
