‘Hawk Momma’ cherished role as voice of HPS

Sharon Klute is the face, and the voice, of Hampton Public Schools -- and she likes it that way.
A detail-oriented person who can juggle several tasks at a time, Klute is the one who answers the phone, greets guests, attends to sick kiddos and watches through her front office window as a steady stream of students pass by all day, every day school is in session. Now in her 18th year on the job, she is the only school office manager Hampton students have ever known, though that will change as of May 31. Story in this week's ANR.
