Senior Nicole Rubio of Robert Turner College and Career High School in Pearland ISD hand wrote eight letters to custodians, cafeteria workers, a security guard and a teacher.
Rubio said the letters started as a way to earn community service hours for the National Technical Honor Society.
A student at Turner shared heartwarming notes of appreciation to the school custodians and cafeteria workers for their hard work and dedication to the students and to the school's operation. #PearlandISDCares #WeArePearlandISD pic.twitter.com/xgaz9fjfn0— Pearland ISD (@PearlandISD) January 23, 2021
The project then evolved into a way for Rubio to show her sincere appreciation for people who don't often get a lot of thanks.
"The first person that I see when I walk in is the security guard standing by the door," she said. "He is such a wonderful man, and he tells me 'Good morning' every day, that we're going to have a great day. So, it's always started on a good moment because his smile will light up any room."
Rubio said the security guard was so touched by her letter that he asked to meet her in person.
