ANDERSON, IN — Sue Chafin''s life revolves around the children of Valley Grove Elementary School, according to The Herald Bulletin.
Chafin, a custodian at the school for 26 years, has been instrumental in replacing the school''s deteriorating playground, the article stated.
According to the article, since starting her fundraising efforts last year, Charin raised nearly $15,000 to revitalize the playground equipment and grounds.
"Sue took it all on herself," said Principal Jan Koeniger.
"She did just about every fundraiser you can think of, Boxtops for Education, selling popcorn and candy, recycling paper, all kinds of things. She really got the whole thing started," Koeniger added.
Chafin had noticed that the equipment the children played on daily had begun to become unsafe, and while it didn''t directly fall under her job description, Chafin felt responsible, the article noted.
"One of the slides had a crack in the middle and the kids kept getting stuck. Those kids are a big part of my life and I just felt like they deserved something better," said Chafin.
