We are honored to present an award in memory of a very special man. John Hutchinson, beloved late husband of our school secretary, Rosa Hutchinson. Because of Rosa, John was associated with St. Joseph School for many years, but after his retirement, he came to work here, and he became an official member of our staff. We all came to know John as a hard worker, but more importantly, we came to appreciate his kindness, his compassion and his consideration of others. John was a quiet, gentleman, with a great sense of humor, but above all, he was a good Christian.
