Students Raise Money for Janitor So He Can Visit His Family Overseas

Ricky Spaulding will use the money to visit his son who is stationed in Italy

Kentucky students with big hearts raised nearly $2,000 so a school janitor could visit his family overseas, Lex18.com reports.

At Anderson County High School, about 30 miles west of Lexington, janitor Ricky Spaulding was called to mop up a spill in the gym and walked right into a pep rally being hosted in his honor. He was given a trash can filled with cash that he and his wife will use to visit their son, who is stationed in Italy, so they can meet their grandson for the first time.
