Educational Services Professional of the Year, Mr. Gil Pilarte!
Congratulations to Mr. Gil Pilarte, the Hillsborough High School Educational Services Professional of the Year!
Mr. Pilarte has been at Hillsborough High School since 2006, working as a Student Assistance Counselor and a co-advisor for Sources of Strength and Peer Mentoring. Mr. Pilarte is known for his sense of humor, his ability to provide students with a haven where they can express themselves and work through their concerns productively, and being an attentive ear and voice of reason when students are struggling. The family that nominated him stated, “It is obvious he is well liked by the long line outside his office. It is truly a safe zone….. Mr. Pilarte goes above and beyond to check in on the students whom he has worked with and always has their best interests in mind.”
Congratulations, Mr. Pilarte! The HHS Family is so proud of you!
