'I’m just a normal person who works hard and tries to help people. l love working at King’s.' - 'Unsung Hero', Sonia Brown
We are hugely proud that the High Sheriff of Warwickshire, Joe Greenwell, CBE DL has presented a High Sheriff ‘Unsung Hero’ award to our very own Sonia Brown. Sonia has worked at King’s High for five years as a midday supervisor, cleaner, and in hospitality. She was nominated for the award by our pupils and staff. Head Girl, Olivia says: ‘We all love Sonia. She is so friendly to everyone, and always talks to us. We’re really excited and delighted for her.’
The High Sheriff ‘Unsung Hero’ awards honour people across the UK who ‘go above and beyond’. Warwickshire’s High Sheriff office has worked hard to present awards to recipients during Covid, often via virtual presentations. With schools back in action, it was decided to try and arrange a socially distanced ceremony, to honour Sonia Brown at King’s High. Sonia was accompanied by her mother, Head Master, Dr Burley, and Mr Nicholson, Principal of the Warwick Independent Schools Foundation.
Sonia says: ‘l was so surprised when l was told l had won my award. I’m just a normal person who works hard and tries to help people in any way l can. l love working at King’s. The staff are so friendly and l get on well with them all (they always say l have a smile on my face all the time). And l love working with the girls. They are all amazing and it’s a true honour to work alongside them. l have made my family so proud.’
