There is a substitute teacher from Pinkerton that was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Some of the students had set up a go fund me page and it received a ton of support, so much that the Eagle Tribune picked up the story. From there channel 9 picked up the story and they were overwhelmed with the amount of community support they had received and greatly appreciated it as his wife needed a major surgery of her own. Some of the young employees recognized him when he and his wife came in to dine and approached me to do something nice for him. He was brought to tears and emotional at the level of care his “kids” had for him. His motto when he started teaching was if he showed them respect they would show it in return and he was certainly correct in that theory as they have continued to offer it and show their love for this man and his family. They left holding hands thanking us tremendously and said they will make sure they pay it forward.
