Longtime Arts Teacher Retires

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Mayor Gary Christenson congratulated longtime Malden Public Schools Fine Arts Teacher Joe Luongo on his retirement following nearly 20 years of service with the City of Malden! Beginning at the Linden School, where he worked to create wonderful and challenging art projects for the students, he was well known for making sure to include every student’s artwork in the Linden annual art exhibit. He was eventually recruited to Malden High School, where he continued the 25-year tradition of the Fine Arts Club and brought the MHS Arts program into the 21st century by creating a top-notch graphic arts curriculum. Joe was also instrumental out of the classroom: He worked on the Bike to the Sea mural along the Bike Path and assisted with various switch box artwork projects over the years.

Mayor Christenson presented Joe with a Citation at the kickoff of Malden’s Annual Blue and Gold Gallery and thanked him for his passion for the arts and commitment and contributions to our students.
