4/26/2005 Linfield hosts Salute to Teachers

McMINNVILLE - Linfield College will kick off national Teacher Appreciation Week with a Salute to Teachers on Monday, May 2, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Ford Hall at Linfield.

The reception and recognition ceremony will honor the 83 Linfield graduates who are employed by the McMinnville School District. Linfield alumni make up 26 percent of the district’s employees. Educators with more than 25 years of service will receive special acknowledgement.

The salute is an opportunity to recognize the extraordinary relationship between Linfield and the McMinnville School District, according to Lisa Garvey, director of alumni relations.

"Linfield is pleased to spotlight our own fine alumni educators," she said. "It is unique to have so many Linfield graduates working in the same district, and they continue to enrich the community through their important work with students."
