Deborah “Debbie” Holmes, the mailroom attendant at the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center, is an inspiration to everyone who encounters her. You may see her power-walking before work or carrying boxes up three flights of stairs without breaking a sweat. Holmes astounded everyone at the first HMW Benefits Health Fair this summer when her biometrics revealed her excellent physical condition. At age 66, Holmes is in her second career, having retired from the U.S. Postal Service as a mail carrier. Outside of HISD, she golfs, dances weekly with her partner, and volunteers extensively. Her advice is simply to stay active.
