Retiring Employees Have Served More than 550 Years

The retiring class of 2023 has given an impressive 550 years of combined service to the students and families of Westminster Public Schools. Join us in celebrating this next step in their lives at the annual Retirement Celebration on Wednesday, May 17 from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Westminster High School Café.
