“I won two bronze stars, I had one for meritorious service and one for heroism. This means more to me than those awards. Getting a little bit older in life, it just means more to me. These kids, everyday it just brings life to me and it brings life to the kids. They love me, I love them and I love Marshall. It’s just the best job I’ve ever had,” [Billy] Weldon said shortly after hearing the news.
During the school year, Weldon had been nominated by [Principal] Reasor for a national online contest run by Safe Kids Worldwide for communities to vote for their favorite crossing guard.
