505 GCPS retirees to begin another chapter in 2013

As 10,556 Gwinnett high school seniors receive their diplomas this week, 506 Gwinnett employees who supported them through their academic career also start a new chapter in their lives. The educators and support staff members are retiring after teaching students in the classroom, driving them to and from school, serving them their meals, guiding and counseling them, and proving support and resources to them.

In total, the 2012-13 retirees have contributed a collective 12,590 years of their lives to education, and a total of 9,725 years to Gwinnett schoolchildren. In fact, 44% (222) of the retirees have worked their entire careers with Gwinnett County Public Schools. Among this year¹s retirees, 183 have 30 or more years of service in education, 18 have invested 40 or more years in education, and one retiree has 48 years in education. The group of retirees includes four school principals, veteran central office leaders, a number of longtime support staff members, and many administrators, classroom teachers, counselors, and media specialists.
