We just wanted to bring attention to a young man we met Saturday morning while cleaning up the toilet paper from the St. John’s State Championship celebration.
Derek Townsend joined us after completing his Delphos Herald paper route.
We asked him who he was and what school he went to. He attends Franklin Elementary.
He was very pleasant and worked with us until all the mess was cleaned up.
It was nice to see he is color blind. He doesn’t see in red/white or blue/gold. He just wanted to help.
He also attended a small bit of the celebration the night before.
