06-18-12: School board honors retiring district employees

Each year, the Puyallup School Board honors retiring district employees with a special board recognition and reception.

This year’s retirees received certificates, flowers, and pins during the June 11 Puyallup School Board meeting.

The recognition program began with a performance by the Puyallup High School Concert Choir, directed by George Guenther. The choir honored the retirees by singing “Blessing” and “Teach Your Children.”

The retirees’ supervisors outlined their years of service and asked family members and friends to stand during the recognitions.
