Tanya Turman, the parent volunteer coordinator at Orchard Knob Middle, received an “I Am Hamilton” t-shirt for taking care of children and families at Orchard Knob Middle School. The district presents the shirts to individuals for efforts that "positively impact Hamilton County Schools and the children we serve."
 
“Ms. Turman is the gold standard for taking care of children and families in this community,” said Jill Levine, chief of Opportunity Zone for Hamilton County Schools.  
 
Ms. Turman has developed the Care Closet at Orchard Knob Middle that provides clothes for children when they need them.  She also coordinates clothing donations to keep the closet stocked.  Ms.
Thurman is now working with several other schools in the area to develop a Care Closet.  
 
Ms. Turman also works with parents in the community as she operates the Parent Resource Center at Orchard Knob Middle.  She helps connect parents with GED programs and offers Lunch and Learn opportunities at the school where parents get information about how to help their children with school work.
 
“I am Hamilton” spotlights the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers and community members providing opportunities for children in the classrooms of Hamilton County Schools.  "Better opportunities for children today mean a brighter future filled with possibilities for our graduates, their families and the community," officials said.
