Three Cheers for the Kindness Bus Tour

November 10th, 2010

11-10--10Swansboro Middle School is in eastern Onslow County, in Swansboro NC. Nearly 800 students attend this school and it is fortunate to have such a dedicated staff. From the minute I walked through the door, I felt as though I was as welcome as one of the staff. Receptionist, Betty Moore said that she had read the article in the paper about One Million Acts Of Kindness. Lori Odum, the Volunteer Coordinator at the school, was so thrilled she actually cheered out loud. The word of The Kindness Certificates is starting to spread among parents, students and educators.
I arrived at Swansboro Elementary School just before lunch hour. The enthusiastic reception was commonplace from campus to campus today. The faculty at some of the schools had already heard about our visit to other schools and were hoping we would make it to theirs.   Upon leaving, or trying to do so; The Kindness Bus has been having some starting issues, it was as if our delayed departure was planned. While I was waiting for the starter to engage, classrooms of students and teachers walked by The Kindness Bus and it was used as a teaching lesson. Wonders never cease.
