In a virtual ceremony May 21, Georgetown ISD recognized teachers who have served 20, 25, 30 and 35 years as educators in the district, as well as those who have retired over the last school year.

Together, the 38 educators honored have a combined 840 years of experience in teaching GISD students, said Jensen Young, president of the Georgetown ISD Education Foundation.


"All the honorees we are recognizing today are here for one purpose: to help the student of GISD receive a world-class education," Young said.
