We are saddened by the loss of Mrs. Sharon Hunt who passed away on Friday, September 25. Mrs. Hunt taught in Reading Schools for 21 years from 1999 until her retirement in May. Throughout her years in Reading, she taught our 5th graders, first at Hilltop and then at our new school.
“The RCCSD family lost a very beloved and respected staff member who just recently retired from the district. She had a tremendously positive impact on so many students and colleagues throughout her career. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and all of those affected by this tragic loss of a member of the education community,” shared Reading Superintendent Jason Enix.
Sharon’s colleagues remember her as a kind and loving educator.
“Sharon had an impact on hundreds of students throughout her teaching career at Reading Hilltop. I had the privilege and honor of working with Sharon. Not only did she challenge her students academically, but she also instilled a love of reading and encouraged each of them to be a good person. If a child was hungry, she shared her lunch. If a student was having a bad day, she gave up her lunchtime to hang out with them,” said Reading Board President Beth Wernery.
Teachers often do not know the impact they had on students until years later. Sharon was one of those teachers whose students came back to visit because they knew how much she cared and wanted to share with her in person what a difference she had made in their lives.
If you have a special memory of Mrs. Hunt, please share in the comments below and we will pass it on to her family.
Visitation will be at Evans Funeral Home, 741 Center Street, Milford, Ohio on Wednesday, September 30, from 5:00- 8:00 p.m. The funeral service will be held at Evans Funeral Home on Thursday, October 1, at 10:00 a.m.
Donations are being accepted in Sharon's name to purchase books for Reading Elementary. Please make checks payable to Reading Schools c/o Sharon Hunt, 810 East Columbia Avenue, Reading, OH 45215.
Rest in Peace, Sharon. Once a Blue Devil, Always a Blue Devil.
