Last Friday morning, Taylor County Elementary School (TCES) custodian Sedrick Jones received a radio call, asking him to come to the school’s lunchroom.
The call said something about “the chicken is here.” Leaving his work outside, he made his way to the lunchroom.
Six bits! A dollar!
When he entered the lunchroom, there was no chicken, but instead, several classrooms’ worth of students, along with Principal Charles Finley and Superintendent Paul Dyal, who were there for him.
All for Sed, stand up and holler!
Finishing their cheer, the students did indeed holler, waving handmade signs and clapping for their favorite custodian, who had just been named the Taylor County School-Related Employee of the Year.
