NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) — An elementary school in Newport News is holding a remembrance ceremony to honor an employee for her 42 years of dedicated service.
Edna Guynn started working in the cafeteria at Hidenwood Elementary School in 1971 when her youngest daughter began school there. Until an accident at age 82 sidelined her, she never missed a day of work, say Newport News Public Schools.
Guynn passed away in March of this year and on Thursday school officials will hold the remembrance ceremony in the school’s cafeteria at 4 p.m. School officials will also unveil a plaque that will honor her memory.
Hidenwood Elementary School is located at 501 Blount Point Road.
