Send-off for district retirees

So long and good luck to VVUHSD retirees!
Posted on 06/02/2016

More than two dozen longtime employees of the Victor Valley Union High School District are retiring this year, and many of the retirees recently gathered in the VVUHSD Board Room for a celebration of their service.


Family, friends and VVUHSD administrators, including Superintendent Dr. Ron Williams and Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dr. Keith Beeman, were on hand as each retiree was given an opportunity to talk about what they did for the district and their post-retirement plans.


Each retiring employee was given a commemorative desk clock with the message “Thank you for your time spent with VVUHSD.”


Congratulations and good luck to these dedicated and loyal employees:
