Suess, Brass nominated for RTHS Critical Thinking Award
ROCHELLE — Rochelle Township High School Principal Dr. Chris Lewis has recently nominated two RTHS staff members for the school’s Critical Thinking Award: Mrs. Lindsay Suess and Ms. Yvonne Brass.
Suess serves as a math teacher and assistant volleyball coach at RTHS. Beyond her teaching and coaching roles, she has displayed exceptional leadership in developing the RTHS freshman seminar program. She collaborated with several other RTHS staff members to create a video titled "How to be a Hub" for the class.
Brass holds a diverse array of responsibilities at RTHS that demand quick thinking every day. She fulfills the role of test reader coordinator and special education administrative assistant, managing all accommodations for students with special needs. Additionally, she contributes to tasks including managing RTHS athletic tickets, assisting in the main office, and doing anything else that is needed to make the school run smoothly.
Both received a $75 gift certificate to the RTHS Booster Club web store and will donate $50 to the donation of their choice. Money to fund the award program comes from donations from the RTHS Class of 1961 and the RTHS Alumni Association.
