Blossom Fugh, the school nurse at Calvin Donaldson Environmental Science Academy, is a special person choosing to make a difference. Hamilton County Schools honored Ms. Fugh with an I Am Hamilton shirt and recognized her as an HCS Hero for her outstanding work, keeping children and staff healthy during the worldwide pandemic.
"Heroes are not always people who do spectacular deeds but are often merely everyday individuals who determine to take an opportunity to act and make a difference," officials said.
“The office staff of Calvin Donaldson Environmental Science Academy would like to nominate our awesome, always smiling, and going above and beyond nurse, Blossom Fugh,” said Lorie Collier, principal of Calvin Donaldson.
“Nurse Blossom comes in every morning with a smile on her face and greets each child in the car rider line.”
“She welcomes them and offers them a ‘have a great day!’ or a ‘Remember to be awesome!” added Beth Payne, the school secretary. “She never stops as she checks into classrooms during the day to ask the teachers if there is anything they need.”
“She also hops in the office and does the same for us,” added Misty Boyd, the clerical assistant at Calvin Donaldson.
“She is an invaluable team member, and we cannot imagine not having her at our school,” said Tersheia Hayes, assistant principal at Calvin Donaldson.
“She manages our COVID supplies like a BOSS,” added Jonathan Nash, the behavior management specialist at the school.
“She stays on top of the trending COVID protocols and makes sure that all of the staff and parents stay informed,” said Jessica Morrow, the guidance counselor at Calvin Donaldson. “And, she does all of this with a friendly smile under her face mask.”
