Distinguished Service Award
With the mission of the Midland Public Schools serving as its focus, the Board of Education acknowledges the valuable contributions made by its support staff in providing an excellent education for our students. A quality educational system can only occur when every employee group works together to promote the welfare of the students and the community it serves.
To further recognize the effort put forth by members of our support staff, the Midland Public Schools’ Board of Education has established the "Distinguished Service Award" to be presented annually.
