Custodian Travis Kennedy is a loved figure at Jasper High School and liked by all students. It didn’t come as a surprise when students Sam Hice and Preston Reed decided to reward him for his commitment. The student noticed that Kennedy was making a 20-mile daily commute in a worn-out aged truck, so took it upon themselves to do something about it.
They launched a GoFundMe page for “Travis the Janitor” to help him replace his 30-year-old truck. The description of the funding read that Kennedy “deserves much more than just a new truck, but this is a start.” The goal was to raise $20k and thankfully they have managed to raise it.
It’s a pleasant surprise for Kennedy, who has dedicated 22 years of his life and has impacted the lives of thousands of students over the years. He is known for greeting students in the hallways and always having a smile on his face. It’s a truly kind gesture for a well-deserving man.
