HHMS Employee of the Month - Brett Burch The Incredible Mr. Burch

Hamilton-Holmes Middle School would like to recognize Mr. Brett Burch as the Employee of the Month for January.  Mr. Burch is the definition of an unsung hero for our school.  He is someone who gets to work early and then volunteers to stay late to help set up for an after school activity.  Without question, Mr. Burch is constantly ready and willing to go the extra mile to help anyone in need.  From students to staff, Mr. Burch is always one that can be counted on to step in and work to make a difference.

HHMS Employee of the Month - Veronica Rosso V Rosso

Hamilton-Holmes would like to recognize Mrs. Veronica Rosso as the Employee of the Month.  Mrs. Rosso recently joined the Hamilton-Holmes family as the school’s bookkeeper in July and has been an outstanding addition to our school.  From her first day, she has jumped into any situation to help without hesitation.  Even when planning the division’s teacher convocation, Mrs. Rosso stepped up to sing the Star Spangled Banner and received a standing ovation. 

Mrs. Rosso always makes sure that everyone is taken care of and that everything is in order.  She consistently works behind the scenes to take care of the students and staff of Hamilton-Holmes from balancing the books to leading our recent Muffins with Mom program.  Mrs. Rosso was pivotal in making our first Muffins with Mom for the school year an outstanding success.  We are so fortunate to have Mrs. Rosso as a member of our school and know that she will continue to bring a smile to the face of everyone that she meets.  It is clear why the staff of Hamilton-Holmes recognized Mrs. Rosso for our Employee of the Month.
