Orangefield Elementary staff members were all smiles Friday as Orangefield I.S.D. Superintendent Philip Welch and School Board President Susan Gunstream delivered longevity stipend checks just in time for Christmas.

Staff members who have been employed by the district for at least one year received checks ranging from $200.00-800.00 based on years of service.

Staff members having more than twenty years received an additional $50.00 for each year of service.
