Guynes made history when she was announced as the first Milken Educator Award recipient from the Germantown Municipal School District and the sole honoree from Tennessee this 2022-23 season. The recognition by the Milken Family Foundation comes with a $25,000 cash prize that Guynes can use however she chooses. She will join the 2022 class of up to 40 elementary educators nationwide to be recognized this school year.
In early October 2022, we cut the ribbon on our employee clinic. Here we will provide free minor medical care to GMSD employees, dependents, and retirees who utilizes GMSD health insurance. This partnership with Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare is an investment in the health and well-being of our employees and their families.
