Jerry Butler is a custodian at Madison Creek Elementary, but to the students, he’s more than that. He’s a smile that greets them in the afternoon. He’s a fan that spends all day at the field cheering on the kids as they play baseball. He’s a patient grown-up that helps a student clean up a spill. And he loves to amaze the kids with his juggling skills.
The kids clearly appreciate him. In 2015, the students recognized his love of sports and raised money to buy Mr. Butler a fresh pair of sneakers.
“Had I known you knew about the shoe story, I would’ve worn them for my picture.”
No need Mr. Butler. We know you appreciate them, because we appreciate you.
