Congratulations to the 12 Inver Grove Heights Schools retirees of 2021-2022! This year’s group of retirees includes many teachers and staff members who have been with the district for more than 20 years, including Simley High School Social Studies Teacher Mike Murr who has served ISD 199 students for more than 50 years. Whether they have been a friendly face on the bus, in the lunch room, at the cross walk, or in the classroom, these retirees will be greatly missed. These teachers and staff members have mentored and guided thousands of students over their years of service.

ISD 199 wishes retirees the best as they begin their next chapter in retirement. Thank you, retirees, for the care and dedication you have put into your work over the years, and congratulations on your well-deserved retirements!
