The students and employees at Frances Buzzard’s school in West Virginia adore her and highly esteem her as a school janitor.
The 77-year-old always arrives at Belle Elementary School smiling and takes excellent care of the facility.
However, when the staff learned that her upbringing wasn’t like other modern children’s, they made the decision to do something special.
Since Frances was raised in poverty, she had little money to spend on birthday or holiday celebrations.
The staff decided to amend this and throw her a birthday party as a token of their appreciation.
They called Frances to the room after 200 staff members and students had come to celebrate her birthday and the café had been decorated with birthday snacks.
Could Rendall and Ms. Frances kindly come to the cafeteria? the Charleston Gazette-Mail reported that the loudspeaker asked.
Frances thought she was being summoned to carry out a chore, but when she opened the doors and discovered what was there, she couldn’t believe it.
As gifts were brought out into the hallway, the students applauded and sent their best wishes her way. The school also produced a short film that featured Frances’ face in a number of well-known incidents that she had experienced.
She received royal treatment, including her own sash and tiara.
When her family had the money, Frances disclosed that the only presents she had ever received as a child were fruits and nuts.
Oh, there is a huge celebration. I appreciate it because no one has ever done this for me, Frances exclaimed with joy.
