Celebrating our 2019 Retirees

It was a celebration with smiles, tears, hugs, and cake and flowers at the Puyallup School Board meeting on June 17, when this year’s retirees were recognized.

There are 52 educators and staff members retiring this school year. Combined, they have nearly 1,300 years with the district. Many have served Puyallup students for 30 years or more.

Each of the retirees in attendance at the school board meeting were introduced by their administrator who outlined their career and service with the district. They were greeted by the school board directors and received a flower and a pin.

“Tonight, we would like to recognize these people for their dedication to the Puyallup School District and the work they have done over the years in support of our students, staff, and community,” said Chief Communications Officer Brian Fox.

The retirees for the 2018-19 school year are:
