St. Joseph’s Indian School Announces years of service. On May 30, 2020, St. Joseph’s Indian School will celebrate employees who have reached an employee milestone. A local employer-of-choice, St. Joseph’s Indian School considers its employees their most valuable asset.

President Mike Tyrell feels that the organization and student success across campus does not happen without recognizing and celebrating the service of our staff. “We have a very dedicated group of employees. One measure of this is the longevity of our employees. It is hard not to be thankful to each person for their unique and dedicated service to our Mission,” said Tyrell.
