Hopkins Staff Members Depart After Decades on The Hill

Hopkins says goodbye to two more staff members.
After nearly 28 years on The Hill, Anthony Barbaro retired from his position in the Maintenance Department.

Over the years, Barbaro served in a critical role at Hopkins. He did nearly everything when it came to events, including “building repairs to set up for social events and school meetings.” Head of Maintenance Liz Climie says Barbaro always had “a friendly demeanor and helpful attitude.” She recalls, “He even got to know many of the people who walk their dogs through campus. He not only knew their name, but the name of the pooch too! He would always carry dog bones in his golf cart in hopes of making a new friend, or keeping the old friends happy and well fed.”

Barbaro has many hobbies and interests which he looks forward to pursuing and investing more time in during retirement. He looks forward to “having more free time to spend with family and friends and enjoy working on my antique car and boating.” Barbaro states that his favorite memory of Hopkins is watching “students learn and grow through the years and go on to be young adults.” However, Barbaro departs promising, “I know I will miss Hopkins but will continue to support it in the future!”

Development Services Associate Carol Brouillette will be retiring after 13 years on The Hill.

Working in the Development Office, Brouillette handled all processing pledges, acknowledgments, and donations. She hopes to keep her mind active in retirement and looks forward to volunteering, enjoying the summer, and hoping for post-pandemic normalcy.

Brouillette will miss working at reunions and finally getting to put faces with names, as well as the staff: “They are like family and we have shared many of life’s experiences together.” Recalling her time and memories at Hopkins, Brouillette says, “I will take with me the camaraderie and solutions that Hopkins teaches all of us...I have bonded with some great members of the staff and look forward to continuing our friendships.”
