"Paul Appreciation Week" included a marquee sign in front of the campus and special certificates from principal Carla Henderson and from Pleasanton City Council members Jack Balch and Kathy Narum on Nov. 18.

"Paul is truly a gem of a human being, memorizing every student's name, keeping track of siblings and cousins, remembering birthdays and big upcoming vacations -- in short, Paul makes Hearst a special place," said Amanda Brown, of the Hearst PTA. "It is amazing and heart-warming to all of us at Hearst how much our crossing guard means to our community and kids."
