Together, "We Are Hamilton"

“We are Hamilton” has been heard and seen a lot in the past year as the school district encouraged the community to understand that the schools are our schools in Chattanooga and Hamilton County. The Hamilton County school district is teachers, staff, children, parents and the community all coming together to provide opportunities today that will lead to brighter possibilities for tomorrow.

Collectively, we are Hamilton, but it is each individual taking “We are Hamilton” to heart and contributing to opportunities for children that is making a difference in our schools. Hamilton County Schools is a teacher connecting a child to knowledge, a parent partnering with the school to get a child to the classroom ready to learn, or a community member taking the time to volunteer in our schools. Each plays a vital role in providing possibilities for tomorrow.

“I am Hamilton” will spotlight the contributions of alumni, teachers, parents, students, support workers and community members in 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. 

To nominate someone for “I Am Hamilton,” send an email to communications@hcde.org with the name of the person you would like to nominate, the school the individual is connected to in Hamilton County Schools, the person’s title, and what makes the individual a valued contributor to Hamilton County Schools. You can nominate a graduate, teacher, parent, student, support worker, community member, or anyone playing a role in a school in the district. Also, include your name, school or location, and title.
