Congratulations to Mr. Matt Brado on his recognition as the September 2023 FCPS CARES Region 1 Recipient of the Month, presented by the FCPS Department of Human Resources.

The FCPS CARES Program allows parents, staff, and community members to recognize FCPS employees for going above and beyond to help others and show they care. We invite you to submit your story below so we can all acknowledge the good work of FCPS employees.

Below is the write-up submitted by Principal Vereb.

Today at lunch, a student was choking, and Mr. Matthew Brado, Instructional Assistant, stepped in to perform the Heimlich maneuver. Mr. Brado performed the maneuver for close to two minutes and successfully dislodged the stuck food. Further, his heroic efforts today saved an 8th-grader at Herndon Middle School. We are fortunate for Mr. Brado's quick thinking and action.
