HASA's own Mr. Rogers really has something special to celebrate! - Hearing and Speech Agency

HASA's own Mr. Rogers really has something special to celebrate!

We often get so busy in the day-to-day operations of keeping HASA's programs and initiatives running smoothly that we forget to commemorate individual celebrations, big and small. But Mr. Herb's birthday -  and a milestone one at that - is one that cannot go unmentioned.  

As an Air Force veteran and a hearing aid wearer, Herbert has been willing to share his own story in the media and has been featured on Veteran's Day specials on WYPR, WJZ, and WBAL.In 2017, Herbert was recognized with HASA's very first Heart & Soul Award, given to an outstanding team member who most embodies HASA's mission.  Here's what we had to say about him then:

Herbert Rogers has spent three decades protecting HASA- both literally and figuratively. In 1992, he worked for the Baltimore City Police Department and HASA’s building (then on St. Paul Street, in the Old GoucherBuilding) was on his beat. The building was in a neighborhood that needed additional security in the evenings and in 1996 Herbert offered to help. He had become so much a part of the community at this point that everyone already knew him. In 2000, he joined the team full time as the first face visitors see when they walk through the front door.

In the 17 years since he joined HASA full time, Herbert has been the organization’s first voice, first face, and first responder in times of crisis. In addition to being Director of Security, he also wears the hat of party planner, volunteer, donor, and community representative. He was an integral part of our move to the new building in Seton Business Park in 2004.

Herbert is the very first winner of the Heart and Soul Award and that seems most appropriate; he is the first voice our clients hear when they call, the first face our students see when they get off the bus each morning, and the first person everyone thinks of when they think of HASA.

Please join us in wishing HASA's own Mr. Rogers the best birthday ever!
