Honoring Our Retirees

Honoring Our Retirees

Congratulations to all our 2022-23 retirees!

These staff members have made a difference for our students, families and the community as a whole, and we're grateful.

In honor of our retiring staff, a celebration will be held at 4:30 P.M. on May 17, 2023 at the administration center located at 1000 W 4th Avenue, Kennewick. We welcome the public to attend this event as we look forward to celebrating the years of service and dedication they have given to the KSD.
