Hoosick Falls Central School District honors 2018 retirees
Hatfield has worked within a school district for almost 40 years, both in Averill Park and Hoosick Falls. She received her master's degree in education administration in 1994, and her N.Y. state permanent certification as a school business administrator soon after. Hatfield joined the Hoosick Falls School District in 2005, and became the varsity golf coach in 2009.
"My time at Hoosick Falls provided me with the opportunity to work with a team that puts students first," Hatfield said in a release. "Together, we implemented new programs and opportunities for student success."
"As a coach," she added, "I couldn't ask for a better group of players from day one to now. I am proud to have been by their side for their accomplishments."
Hatfield's position is being filled by Emily Sanders, the district's current treasurer. Sanders is a graduate of HFCS and was the valedictorian of her class. Sanders and Hatfield have been working closely together throughout the year to guarantee a smooth transition in the position.
Brooks, who has been in the school food service industry for more than 20 years, joined HFCSD in 2008. She has an associate's degree in hotel restaurant management and has been a food service manager at school districts in Greenwich, Salem, and Brunswick before taking on the role in Hoosick Falls.
Her position is being filled by Ken Fleming, who has more than 20 years of experience in the food industry, most recently as a food services manager with Price Chopper/Market 32.
"One thing I'll really miss is the people at Hoosick Falls Central School. There are so many who give 100 percent every day and I have always appreciated that. It has helped to make my job easier and I just want to say thank you to those people," Brooks said.
