During the all school pep assembly on Jan. 8, Rae Ann Noah was announced as support staff member of the year. Currently, Noah serves as administrative assistant to Nathan Hostetler, but she has worked at FHN for the past seven years. While announcing her win, Hostetler described her as “One of the very best human beings I have ever known.”

Noah’s responsibilities each day include coordinating substitutes for every teacher, managing payroll, preparing for graduation, and helping Hostetler manage the work that comes along with his position. According to coworker Stephanie Slaughter, Noah handles all her work with grace.

“There couldn’t be anyone better, she works very hard for our students and our staff,” Slaughter said.  “She’s truly a joy to work with, and she brings a smile to every person in the building.”

According to Noah, the reason she is able to do her job successfully, is because she enjoys her work environment. Noah aims to build relationships with her peers and students, making them her friends rather than just people she works with.

“My favorite part of this job is that I feel like we’re family,” Noah said. “I love getting up and coming to work in the morning.”
