Service Recognition


On May 21, the Board of Education of Sandwich CUSD #430 honored faculty and staff members throughout the district who have served the students, parents and community of Sandwich for at least ten years.

The SHS student council was instrumental in the planning and set-up of the evening's program and the SHS jazz band provided the entertainment for the evening.

Superintendent of Schools, Rick Schmitt, welcomed those in attendance and said, "This is a perfect time to recognize and show appreciation for the many years of dedicated service the staff has provided to the Sandwich learning community as tonight, we are honoring 39 members of our professional team who collectively have accumulated over 740 years of service toward teaching and learning." Schmitt went on to say, "It is important that we recognize and celebrate the service our staff has provided to the Sandwich learning community. Although many demands are placed on school personnel that can create challenges in the classroom and for our District, our loyal staff remains committed and serves our students well on a daily basis."

Stahl went onto say, "I've lived in Sandwich my whole life and it's a great place to live and raise a family. Our student body, including my own children and grandchildren have benefited greatly from the 740 plus years of service this group of professionals provided over the years."
