Matthew Alexander


Eaton Support Staff

of the year

Congratulations to Ms. Alecia Speight, our school security officer, who was selected as Eaton’s Support Employee of the Year. This award goes to support personnel who are skilled, dedicated and knowledgeable about their jobs and are respected by students, parents, and colleagues. These team members provide exemplary customer service and model the core values of Hampton City Schools.


Ms. Speight worked at school building all during the pandemic to help prepare our school for a safe return for students and staff. She helped to clean the school, distribute materials, contact parents and students and deliver meals to families. She greets students at arrival and dismissal, and makes sure that students follow COVID safety protocols. Ms. Speight helps to mentor students and make sure they make good decisions. She is a fixture at lunches and in the hallways.

Ms. Speight is here and accessible, ready and willing to help each and every day to make sure Eaton SOARs above the rest!

Make sure to congratulate Ms. Speight!
