On May 20, the School Board honored employees that have reached professional milestones by providing 20 years or more of service to APS. This year’s honorees included 204 employees who have served a combined total of 4,680 years in APS. Each of these employees are crucial to the success of our school system because they provide continuity and stability for school operations and instructional programs. Although they have all had different career paths, each and every one of them has made a difference in so many lives. Visit our website for a complete list of honorees.
