Calapooia honors staff member for keeping students safe

Posted on: November 3, 2017

On Thursday morning, Calapooia Middle School administrators called a school meeting before classes started to honor a staff member as a “hero” for her quick thinking and action to ensure student safety.

Special Education Assistant Ashley Custis was on bus duty earlier this week when she prevented a student from running in front of a bus after school.

Assistant Principal George Sanchez said, “Heroes don’t fly around in capes like in the movies. They come to school every day and teach everybody.”
