Ms. Betz receiving her FCPS CARES of the Month recognition at a surprise celebration with staff.Congratulations to Ms. Latrice Betz on her recognition as the February 2023 FCPS CARES Region 4 Recipient of the Month, presented by the FCPS Department of Human Resources.

The FCPS CARES Program is an opportunity for 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 a Newington Elementary School parent.

Yesterday I received an email from Latrice Betz regarding my son. My son was eating lunch and she happened to see him unresponsive and flushed and asked if he was ok. She noticed he was choking and immediately ran to his aid and was able to dislodge his food and saved his life. She was my hero yesterday for saving my son and should be recognized as not only a valuable employee with FCPS but as a valuable human being that went above and beyond for my son.
