Campbellsville Middle School custodian Daryl Ford has received this month's Dare to Soar award.
Campbellsville Independent Schools Superintendent Mike Deaton made the presentation at the Campbellsville Board of Education's regular meeting on Monday, March 13.
In reading a letter nominating Ford for the award, Deaton said Ford goes above and beyond each and every day he is working at CMS.
"He is simply not a custodian, but a mentor to the students at CMS and I am glad I can call him my friend," Deaton read.
"He greets all with a smile and goes about his business in a cheerful demeanor. He is always willing to help out when needed, in spite of the yucky bathroom calls."
Deaton said Ford, who is battling cancer, has smiled through his treatments and been at school each day the doctors have let him.
In another letter nominating Ford, Deaton read, it's stated that he always greets everyone with a smile and kind word.
" ... And he is always there to help out in any way needed," Deaton read. "Even while battling cancer, he has worked and remained positive. CMS simply could not function without this man, who is so much more than a custodian, he is a friend to us all."
In accepting the award, Ford said he enjoys his job.
"Around good friends, it's easy to do good," he said.
Ford has worked at CMS for 26 years, and he says the students, teachers, administrators and other personnel at the school make him smile.
"And I try to return the favor to them," he said.
