School Surprises Custodian With Reliable Car

July 30, 2019

On the first day of school next week, custodian Kinnie Morris will roll into the parking lot of Jim Pearson Elementary School, Alexander City, Ala., in a new-to-him car thanks to donations from school staff and parents, WSFA 12 News reports

Kinnie has been a reliable worker at the school for 24 years, befriending students and giving many of them nicknames. Unfortunately, his car, a Buick Park Avenue with almost 300,000 miles that he nicknamed “White Lightning,” has not been as dependable. When the school community found he was borrowing a friend’s car to get to work and to doctor appointments, they set up a Go Fund Me account to raise money for a used vehicle.

The account has about US$6,000 so far, with a goal of $7,500. A local dealer has stepped forward to provide a car before school starts on August 7.
