KSD Honors Retirees
Kennewick School District Honors Retirees Tables filled quickly as retirees, their families and their friends came to celebrate their numerous year of dedication to education at the Kennewick School District retirement party. Fifty-two men and women retired from the Kennewick School District this year; some to hit the road and travel, while others to spend more time with their families and relax. Although not all of the retirees could make it to the celebration, those that did viewed a presentation of well wishes and heartfelt thanks from students and staff members. After laughs, tears and some cake, Kennewick School District Superintendent, Dave Bond, and Kennewick Educators Association President, Teri Staudinger, took the podium. There they gave short speeches about each retireeâ€™s career in education, sharing humorous moments and things they would miss once retired. Before wishing each retiree a happy and fulfilling retirement, Dave and Teri presented the retirees with a clock, to commemorate all their time spent with the District. The celebration concluded with a riveting 21 balloon salute that reverberated throughout the room.
