Thank You, Mr. Vaughn

By Connor Walsh

Every morning kids walk in to school noticing the snow and branches are removed from the sidewalks and a germ free cafeteria.  Kids may not notice that the toilets are working and sinks are not clogged.  Either way, Mr. Vaughn is responsible for ALL of that!

Mr. Vaughn is the head of general maintenance and has been at our school Wayne Elementary for 10 years.  Mr. Vaughn makes sure the cafeteria is ready for breakfast and lunch.  He starts his day really early at 6:00 in the morning, and ends his day later than all the students at 4:00 in the afternoon.

For the most part Mr. Vaughn loves his job because it is never the same and always changing.  His least favorite part of the job is being out from school and not seeing the kids.  Mr. Vaughn likes having a daily routine.

On the last day of school, Mr. Vaughn serves a very important role.  His role is to take down the American flag.  It is appropriate for Mr. Vaughn to do this since he has served  in the U.S. Army Reserves for 27 years.  He served in combat in Iraq in 2006 and 2007.

This coat hanging in his office is his Army jacket.


A lot of kids and I respect Mr. Vaughn.  He does so much for our school.  Thank you so much for serving our country and keeping our awesome school clean!
