After 20 years of service to the Briarcliff community, Mr. Hamlin will retire, a decision that was determined even before the Covid-19 pandemic struck. Mr. Hamlin will trade in teaching and coaching for life in South Carolina: fishing, traveling, and visiting family. Mr. Hamlin does intend on continuing to teach, in a part-time manner, however.
When asked about his favorite memory of BHS, Mr. Hamlin explained, “My fondest memories have always been helping students and athletes achieve things they never thought they could. I have taken great pride in assisting those that may not have been inclined or able to help themselves.” Mr. Hamlin also emphasized, “To my colleagues, I would like to say thank you, I’ve learned so much from all of you. I have much love and respect for the work you do. Too often, we express frustration with not being able to achieve all that we had hoped for. However, the amazing accomplishment of your students is a direct result of the work that all of you do.”
We will certainly miss your tenacious spirit in the classroom and on the court! We also wish you good luck on all your future endeavors.
