HHES Parent of the Year

Erin Gapen



We are honored to present Mrs. Erin Gapen as the Hernando Hills Elementary School Parent of the Year. Mrs. Gapen, her husband Chris and her two sweet boys Chase and Reed all reside in Hernando.


Hernando Hills has a very active Parent Teacher Association. Last year Mrs. Gapen served as vice president and shared in many roles on campus assisting the president. Her willingness to accept and take on the role of president says a lot about her character. Mrs. Gapen possesses calmness, sincerity, hard work ethic, and a servant’s heart. Her way of leading encourages others to jump in, work hard and accomplish goals. She is a “behind the scenes” kind of person that exceeds all expectations without ever seeking any acknowledgement.


This year, HHES exceeded a fundraiser goal that surpassed all others! This is a direct reflection of Mrs. Gapen’s hard work. These funds have enabled the PTA to sponsor Holidays at the Hills, Art at the Hills, Honor Roll parties, save for a playground expansion, and schedule special guests such as magicians and authors. All teachers were given $150 each for supplies for their classrooms. These sponsored events and funds help mold and cultivate a well-rounded educational experience for all students.


We could not do our jobs as well without Mrs. Gapen’s assistance. Her organizational skills and “can do” attitude makes our duties much more enjoyable. We now truly consider her a friend. Hernando Hills Elementary is beyond blessed to have Mrs. Gapen as a part of our “Tiger Team”!
