Mr. Hong Recognized as the FCPS 2022 Region 3 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee
Four Additional Hawk Staff Members Recognized at FCPS Honors!
Congratulations to school counselor Ghil Onyou Hong who was recognized as the FCPS 2022 Region 3 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee and one of the six finalists for the FCPS Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee at this year's FCPS Honors event, held at George Mason University Center for the Arts on June 8th.
Ghil embraces everyone at Hayfield as family. As one student explained, “Family means we need to be there for each other, love one another.” Ghil is there at every turn, whether it is supporting Young Scholars and ESOL or uniting with middle and high school students through the No Place For Hate initiative to combat intolerance. Another student shared, “He made me feel seen and heard when I was at my lowest; he offered support in such a genuine way that I knew he wasn’t just listening to me because it was his job, but because he cared.” This is the unconditional love he has for every student, which has led many to form various iterations of the Hong Squad.
