On April 19, 2018, the PEF hosted 140 people at the Kalamazoo Country Club to recognize the 2017 Portage Public Schools retirees as well as to recognize outstanding educators:  Jim Menchinger, Kathy Mulay, and Laurel Scheidt.  Former students offered the below testimonials for the lasting impact these educators had on their lives.  It is with great respect that we say thank you to all of the teachers and staff for their many years of service to Portage Public Schools.
