Celebrating Years of Service

This school year the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District is re-instituting Years of Service recognition. We are pleased to announce and honor MPUSD team members who have reached the milestones of five, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45 years with MPUSD. (NOTE: The cut-off date for reaching the milestone is June 30. If you were close to the cut-off date, you will be honored in future years. Questions? Contact Human Resources.)
 
Teachers and classified staff have or will be recognized within the coming weeks with a certificate and years of service pin at their school sites.
 
Those team members who have served more than 25 years were presented with a certificate and pin by Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh and Human Resources Assistant Superintendent Dr. Manny Nunez the first week of school. They also recognized administrators celebrating their years of services.
