Many people don’t realize that administrative work is just as important as other jobs. Unfortunately, most caregivers are not respected and look down on them because they are paid less than others. However, those who respect cleaners as much as their CEO are the best, as do the students and staff at Anderson County High School in Lexington, Kentucky.
Ricky Spaulding, who makes sure the school stays clean at all times, is loved by everyone around. He’s described as caring and cheerful. However, there is something that saddens him. Namely, his son works and lives in Italy and Ricky doesn’t get to see him often. He also has a grandson that he has never met.
The thing is that Ricky and his wife can’t afford a trip to Italy because they don’t make much money.
What Ricky didn’t know is that the entire school, including all of the students and the teachers, came up with the idea to surprise him with plane tickets for the trip he was eagerly looking forward to.
Once everything was ready for the big surprise, they called Ricky to the gym saying that he needed to take care of the mess they created. Instead, they presented him with the gift. When he looked down the trash can, instead of garbage, he saw the money. Needless to say, he was very grateful for the incredible act of kindness.
Everyone should visit their grandchildren from time to time, and Ricky deserves this more than anyone else.
