Rock Star, Holly Kain
Ed Hermanski nominated Holly Kain- Holly Kain is not only a very dear friend, she is an exceptional teacher and a wonderful department head. She works very hard at everything she does and goes out of her way to help anyone in need. Holly’s demeanor and candor make her a favorite of many teachers and students on this campus. She also volunteered to help at the Jewish Community Center where we constructed historical displays covering everything from the Holocaust to racism. Holly worked with me at the JCC for years, and we could not have accomplished our goals without her. Holly, you truly are a “Rock Star!”
Rock Star, Brian Newman
Brienna Gass nominated Brian Newman - Brian is a great role model for our students. He keeps his classes fun and engaging while still delivering pertinent information. His students, both current and past, adore him and view him as a mentor. He is kind, professional, and is a great asset to Hamilton.
