District Employees with
20+ Years of Service

We at Maroa-Forsyth have always taken pride in our Tradition of Excellence. We have been entrusted by our community and our predecessors to uphold this tradition, and it drives us to serve our students.

A Tradition of Excellence is not achieved in one year, one decade, or even by any one person, but through the constant sustained efforts of every employee in our district.

Proudly, we recognize and show appreciation for faculty and staff who have served the students of Maroa-Forsyth and those who built our Tradition of Excellence.*

--Dr. Kris Kahler, Superintendent, 2022
