Elden Elmer has volunteered with South Knox Elementary for over the past 14 years. He spends about 3 days a week helping in the kindergarten classrooms, going on field trips, and helping raise funds for the kids, including lunches.
Since the school is short staffed with parents helping, Mr. E is able to provide a helping hand when needed whether it’s laminating and copying or helping tie-dye shirts with the kids. He helped collect money from his local church to help with the school book fair. Colleagues say that he always has a positive outlook on life, and he says that it’s fun to work with all the kids.
