Teachers and staff give a heart touching house warming to one of their own.  Mr. (Jimbo) Hawkins is a custodian at Royall Elementary where he greets students each morning, often by name.  You can often find him attending games, concerts, games, recitals. What many don’t realize behind his everyday smile is a lifetime of struggle.  He lost his parents at a young age and found himself homeless for years.  Well into adulthood, Mr. Hawkins learned to drive, got his license, joined a community church, got a job. He recently got a new apartment.  His family at the school got together and donated furniture, décor, plants, and a stocked pantry. And before he moved in on Thanksgiving, they cleaned, painted and decorated his new home for the holidays and gave him the best house-warming welcoming one could ask for!  To learn more about Jimbo Hawkins, click here.
