CRANFORD - At the June 10 Cranford Board of Education Work Session Meeting, Superintendent Dr. Scott Rubin and the Board honored the 24 retirees of the Cranford Public Schools District. 

Rubin mentioned that he did the math and between the 24 retirees, the average years of service is 25 and they combine for 597 total years of service. 

"If I wore a hat, I would tip it," said Rubin. "But I think it says something about our community, right? One of the things that makes Cranford so charming is that we do have people that commit to the community for so many years and enjoy their time here, build relationships, and really work with our students and help them to succeed."
