Gary Cobb was nominated by an anonymous colleague.
Mr. Cobb is an unsung hero. He's the one they call for "cleanups" - the kind that need a little bag of stuff to sprinkle over the mess. He not only works to keep his school clean and rescue teachers from cleanups, but he also gets to know the students he sees every day and tries to encourage them. When kids are having a bad day, he has a smile and a kind word. He also has high expectations for good behavior and teaches kids to clean up after themselves. When he visits ball games, he encourages every child he knows and talks to them later about the game.
"Gary Cobb is a LifeChanger because he cares for students while he works to keep the building clean," said his nominator.
