Have you ever driven down West Street/Hwy 20 or Grimsby Road 5 when the crossing guards are out? If you have chances are you’ve been greeted by Darrell.
Darrell is one of our amazing crossing guards that smiles and waves at every single vehicle that drives past him. And when I say every single vehicle, I mean EVERY single vehicle. He will even shout out “good morning” and when he sees the kids on the passing school buses, does a silly dance to make them laugh which starts their day off great!
I’m not sure about you but I enjoy getting greeted by Darrell each time I drive by him. It sets the tone for my day and puts a smile on my face.
If you don’t drive past him during the times that he is out being a crossing guard then maybe you will see him at the Smithville Public Library where he volunteers his time. Be sure to say hi because I guarantee he will say hi to you!
