“GGUSD students benefit from the exceptional number of employees who dedicate their entire professional careers to our school district,” said Board of Education President Lan Nguyen.  “We are proud to offer an outstanding workplace culture that attracts wonderful employees who are dedicated to serving students and who contribute to the family feel of our school communities.”

The employees with 45 years of service are Sylvia Krenzien and Grace Noah.
