School District: Palm Beach County Public Schools
City, State: Belle Glade, FL

Support Samuel Leave a comment for Samuel

Samuel King was nominated by a colleague, D'End Pearson-Greer.

How can over four decades of dedication, sacrifice and passion be summarized into a couple of paragraphs? The legacy that Samuel King will be leaving behind as he retires this year, really deserves to be highlighted in a book. When Mr. King began his career, he set out to make a little ripple in his community of Belle Glade. Little did he know, that by the end, the little ripple would become a big wave of lives being changed forever. "On the surface, someone meeting Mr. King today may just see a tall janitor limping around with a knee brace, rough worn out hands and a bright smile," Pearson-Greer said. "In reality though, the knee brace serves as a daily reminder to all that know him of the times he has gone above and beyond the call of duty."

Mr. King has voluntarily coached football for Glades Central High School and has been a role model for these young men for over 20 years. In addition, he has mentored and advocated for the EBD (Emotional Behavioral Disorder) students at Belle Glade Elementary and donated rewards as motivational incentives for student progress. He has even gone as far as providing basic needs to families such as washing their clothes, buying groceries and school supplies so that the children can come to school clean and equipped to learn. Mr. King is a resource called upon to help defuse emotional crisis that students may encounter during the day. He is a major influence in the lives of these students.

"His worn-out hands are a testimony of the difference he has made and all the lives he has touched. Early in his career, Mr. King noticed that the staff had minimum opportunity during the school day to interact and build community. He set out to bring everyone together in the best way he knew how; Cooking!" Pearson-Greer said. Once a month, Mr. King would arrive to the school early and prepare a home cooked meal that the staff would be able to enjoy together in hopes of building a sense of comradery. What he thought was just going to be a once a month gathering, quickly caught the attention of the community and the superintendents. Soon, Mr. King was providing meals for other schools in the area, for various events such as Honor Roll Celebrations, Safety Patrol, Mother and Father School Breakfast and so much more.

His passion for feeding others supersedes the walls of the school and flows into the local community and churches he volunteers for. When asked what he plans to do after his retirement this year, he responded: “My dream is to purchase a food truck and create a nonprofit organization where I will be able to go from school to school appreciating teachers and school staff one meal at a time. On the weekends, I would then feed students that are under government free lunch assistance programs that may not have adequate meals at home.”

"I have heard many different answers to that question, but not once have I heard such a selfless and loving response. Mr. King is truly special and still wants to use his hands to continue changing lives for as long as he can," Pearson-Greer said.

His bright smile is proof that he doesn’t see his last 42 years working for the school district as a job, instead, as a ministry.

"This is just a small taste of the flavor Mr. King has brought to Belle Glade and to the Palm Beach School District. Thank you, Mr. King, you are a LifeChanger!" Pearson-Greer said.

Never seen someone with a heart so big and so caring.. HE WOULD FEED A NATION IF HE COULD. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY UNCLE

Dye Posted 10 months ago

This awesome I have known since his was a little child. He has always had theart of giving every since then. After growing into a respectable young man, he became a wonder husband father and now grandfather. He was taught to cook and he has been feeding thr community, neighbors and staff members at school. I remembered he promised the kids if they do well on a test he would do something special for them. He kept his promise after those kids did well, he had his sister decorat the stage in cafeteria and he cooked a big formal dinner, had a big candy buffet table set up for them afterwards. That was just naming a few...Sam King has been a blessing to any and everyone that came in contact with him. Hes a people person who loves everybody and love to make everybody happy. And when children are happy he is happy. Mr. King is always going all out of his way to make sure the children are happy as well as staff everyday. He is the true meaning of a Life Changer.

I love him so much and it’s not enough words on earth to describe his loyalty to our family and the ones he love. He’s even a life changer to total strangers... He’s simply amazing??

Tiffany Posted 10 months ago

Words can't describe what a great man Mr. King is... A great man and even greater role model to anyone who has crossed his path. I couldn't get away with anything as long as he was around because he would always tell on me(?????? he knew my momma by first and last name) but he was more of a father to us then just someone who cleaned our school(s). Always there when we needed him and supported us in whatever we did. To know him is to truly love him and we could not be more proud of the man that he is...

Mr.King

Robera Walker Posted 12 months ago

I have known Mr. King for more than 10 years and in the most recent 4 years, have served as his supervisor in my position as the Principal at Belle Glade Elementary. I have never worked with someone with such a loving heart for people like Mr. King. As the head custodian at Belle Glade Elementary, he does his job with pride and exceeds expectations. Not only is Mr. King a custodian, but he is a pillar in the Glades Community and known across Palm Beach County as the best cook around! After 42 years of service to Palm Beach County School District, Mr. King is retiring! I have no doubt in my mind that he will be sorely missed! His heart for others has been witnessed over so many years by notable people including, the Chairman of the board of PBCSD Mr. Chuck Shaw and Author Michael Neale – The River, to name a few. Mr. King received the Ezra Award from Author Michael Neale. This Award was in recognition of his outstanding leadership and community service. A school that was built in 1995 is under the care of the best custodian I know! The school is always clean with shining waxed floors and he effortlessly prepares the school for opening every day. You can find him in the cafeteria greeting all the students and ensuring that everyone, including the staff, has eaten breakfast and is ready to have a great day! He exceeds his duties by always being available to open the school when needed and giving time to care for the Saturday tutorial program by cleaning the rooms and cooking for everyone in attendance! Mr. King can cook! He is a prominent known cook on campus and outside of work. He cooks for people around Palm Beach County through his very own catering company, King’s Catering. When someone on staff is sick or feeling blue, he immediately offers his homemade chicken soup. It is sure to cure any sicknesses one might have! In 4 years, I can count the number of days this man has missed work: rain or shine, he is here! I am honored to serve as the Principal of an employee like Mr. King and cannot wait to hear his name announced as the Lifechanger of the Year!

I met Mr. King on my first day at Belle Glade Elementary 10 years ago. Every year since I have learned more about Mr. King and the impact he has had and is making not only on Belle Glade elementary but the Belle Glade community. He has been an awesome role model for the students. He is kind and compassionate to all, students as well as staff. Nothing is too big or small for him. His will to do for others is a testament of his life and his works will be his legacy to the Glades community.

I could not believe all the special things he does for the school. He cares about the students and even makes food for teachers and special guests. Mr. King is always optimistic and brightens everyone’s day. He makes our school feel like a family. He is so loved by everyone at Belle Glade Elementary and the community. Good luck Mr. King.

I have known Mr. Sam King for many years and can say that he is a well deserving candidate for this award. He is such a giver...of his time, his great food (macaroni and cheese - my favorite) and his kind words of encouragement to all that he meets. I have two students from his school in my class who absolutely adores Mr. King. He took time out if his busy schedule to deliver a chair for one and just dropped by to visit the other one. Both of them were so happy to see him and it was such a joy to witness their adoration. He is a truly a Life Changer.

I have known Sam King for nearly 20 years first as a mentor to my son in elementary, then as my husband was the School Resource Officer at his school, as a Scout Leader, then finally as the School Nurse at BGE. I also worked with his wife for 12 years. He has always been a mentor to each and every kid with an affinity to help the troubled. Everyone loves him and I can personally attest to his unbelievable prowess as a super chef!! He works long hours and never stops. We will all miss him terribly when he retires!

I have witnessed Sam taking students under his wings and mentoring them, giving pep talks on the importance of doing good in school, being stearn and telling boys to straighten up and stop fulling around, and buying students supplies or clothes to help them do better in school. He has a heart as big as the school and he wants nothing more than the best for each of the students. He is an amazing person and he is so deserving of this award!! Congratulations Mr. KIng!

I’ve known him since I was in the second grade in BGE & even going back when Bruce was going there, he never forgot about me & made sure to keep an eye on him as he did with me.. He always has something positive to say on top of something slick.. Love this man! Even tho he was just a janitor, he was my favorite teacher. Y’all go support Mr. King ??????

Mr.King is the perfect candidate for this award. He is truly an amazing soul. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing him since my oldest(18) started Elementary and since then he has been more than welcoming, helpful and loving to the kids and parents.

Edwin Cabrera Posted over a year ago

I have worked with many school employees as a teacher, as an athletic director and as a principal and I have never met someone so selfless and caring as Mr. King. I cant imagine how amazing our schools would be if every single one of them in our country had a "Mr. King" putting smiles on the faces of both students and staff. For the last 42 years he has been, for many children, the reason why they have such a bright future and wonderful lives. Mr. King is one of a kind and the ultimate Life Changer of the Century!

When I first started working at Belle Glade Elementary, I was truly in awe of Sam King. It wasn’t uncommon to see Sam walking the halls with students who were having a bad day and needed a break. He would be the first one to step in and have conversations with kids to keep them out of trouble. It didn’t take long to realize that Sam was truly in this job for the kids. He gives countless hours to our school and our community and always goes above and beyond!

In the short time I have known Mr. King and his wife I have come to realize how amazing they are. EVERYONE knows Mr. King and has nothing but wonderful stories to share about how he has impacted their life one way or another. He has a heart of service! Both he and his wife are retiring this year with 38 and 42 years of devoted service to the School District of Palm Beach County and the community of Belle Glade. He is truly a life changer!
