Staff Members Recognized for 25 Years of Service

As a special thank you and recognition for their 25 years of service to the Highlands School District, seven staff members were honored during the district's Staff Opening Day Program on August 23, 2021. Honorees were presented with a yellow rose and escorted onto the stage by a Highlands student. Superintendent Dr. Monique Mawhinney presented the Honorees with a framed certificate to commemorate their years of service, and thanked them for their continued dedication and commitment to the Highlands community. 


Congratulations to all of our Honorees who began their careers with Highlands in 1996!
