Support Walter Leave a comment for Walter

Walter Singletary was nominated by a student, Gisselle Prado.

Mr. Singletary, also known by his students as Sergeant Major, has made an impact on many of his students' lives throughout his years of working at Beddingfield. His mission is to motivate young people to become better citizens. He wants them to be prepared in the future and to be responsible. 

Sergeant Major stays after school on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for raider practice, where every student involved is being prepared for an upcoming competition. The raiders need a bus and money for gas in order to go to competition. Sergeant Major often pays out of his own pocket to arrange travel for the students, and the efforts he puts into his students after school are on his own time. He often arranges donut sales and other fundraisers to make JROTC events happen.
