With over 150 combined years of experience, five retiring Lake Superior School District employees are leaving some big shoes to fill this year.


"We will miss the retirees. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to have them as part of our staff and in the lives of the students in our district," Superintendent Bill Crandall said.

Four teachers are retiring and one administrative assistant. Among them, they've worked at nearly every school in the district.
