Approve Naming of Media Center at Monroe Middle School
The Monroe Middle School faculty, staff, students, and community have requested that the media center at Monroe Middle School be named in honor of Denise Trigg-Anderson.

Mrs. Trigg-Anderson’s career as an outstanding educator and administrator for 41 years has been an inspiration to all who meet her.  Her tireless hard work and devotion in Hillsborough County Public Schools, with the last 14 years being completely dedicated to Monroe Middle School as the assistant principal, has impacted students, families, and faculty.  She is well respected by teachers, parents, and the community, and consistently advocates for students.
Naming the media center at Monroe Middle School in Mrs. Trigg-Anderson’s honor would be a deserving tribute to recognize her many contributions and dedicated service to the school.
• Develop, recognize, and reward employees
Monroe Middle School has budgeted in the beautification internal account to purchase the plaque.
