The Kenosha Unified School District’s recognition programs, established in 1980, include the 25-year reception and recognition and retirement dinner for district employees. The program was created to acknowledge individuals along their career path for their service to the district and public education. The recognition program without a doubt has become part of the district’s culture.
The recognition and retirement dinner honors a select group of individuals who have shown exemplary service in a variety of areas, including one administrator of the year, four teachers of the year (one in each of the following categories: elementary, middle, high and special area), eight distinguished service awards and community in education awards, which includes both the business in education and friend in education awards.
The recognition dinner is part of the district’s culture that fosters respect among staff and shows appreciation for individuals contributing to educating Kenosha’s children.
