Teacher of the year
Teachers have difficult jobs nowadays, perhaps more than at any other time outside of wartime.
So it’s always nice to see a teacher honored for their service.
The Hamtramck Public School District chose Rahiel Housey-Johnson as their Teacher of the Year, and she was honored by the Hamtramck Community Initiative (HCI) for earning the award.
Ms. Housey-Johnson is a teacher of both science and digital literacy at Kosciuszko Middle School.
Unfortunately, Ms. Housey-Johnson was unable to be at the HCI Awards Banquet. The Rev. Sharon Buttry met with her at the Hamtramck Public Library on Sept. 12 to give her the award.
Also being bestowed upon Ms. Housey-Johnson were congratulatory citations from U. S. Congresswoman Brenda Lawrence, State Rep. Abraham Aiyash, and Wayne County Commissioner Martha G. Scott.
HPS student spotlight
This month, we’d like to shout out to one of our Hamtramck High School seniors, Naser Karim!
Naser has been designing logos, server icons and profile pictures since he was 12 years old. He’s such an accomplished graphic artist that we asked him to design the school’s Esports Club logo and look what he came up with!
Way to go, Naser!
In addition to his eye for design, Naser is active in the Esports Club, where he shines on his Rocket League team.
We’re proud of our students for all of the hard work and talent they bring the HPS community. Go Cosmos!
We are proud to celebrate the wonderful diversity found in the Hamtramck community by celebrating holidays and observances together.
