On May 23, Dorchester School District Two honored 49 employees who have joined the ranks of the retired this year. They have worked a combined total of 1,024 years in Dorchester School District Two providing essential services for students.
The retirees were honored at a special ceremony and reception at Summerville High School and were presented with a clock engraved with their names. This year’s retirees include teachers, maintenance staff, food service staff, secretaries, guidance counselors, teaching assistants, and administrators.
