[ARCHIVED] Councilman Maldonado Recognizes Committee Member for Lifetime of Service in Education

Homestead Education Committee member and longtime Miami-Dade Public Schools employee Susan Simon LaGuardia is celebrating her recent retirement. Councilman Elvis Maldonado, Council Liaison to the Homestead Education Committee, honored Ms. LaGuardia’s 30 years of work in education by presenting a Certificate of Recognition to her family at the September Homestead City Council meeting.

“Susan’s expertise with at-risk children has been invaluable and she is an inspiration for those of us on the committee. She attends all the meetings and is a liaison between students and Homestead schools. Thank you Susan for all that you have done for the Homestead Education Committee and Homestead congratulates you on your lifetime of service,” said Councilman Maldonado during the presentation.

Ms. LaGuardia has worked in education during her entire professional career and served as a Senior School Career Specialist in Miami-Dade Public Schools until her recent retirement. Her major focus in education was dropout prevention, recruitment and retention of at-risk high school students and developing student internship programs in dozens of work settings to establish career paths for those at-risk students.

Accepting the award on behalf of Ms. LaGuardia was her daughter-in-law Angela LaGuardia and granddaughter Brianna.
