VISD Custodians Play An Integral Part in Education
Sherry Peddy, a VISD 25 year employee, has certainly walked many hallways in her duties to the district. Currently Peddy is serving as head custodian of the Oak Forest team. She is known for her random acts of kindness such as bringing morning duty teachers coffee to warm them while standing in the cold or making sure students in need of clothes, shoes, supplies, or food get what they need even if it comes out of her own pocket. She even has a treasure box in her office for students who are having a rough time. Teachers often find little treasures she has slipped to them surely bringing smiles and encouragement. Ms. Peddy works with students who may be having behavior issues, letting them have little jobs helping her in the afternoons and providing encouragement to them when they are being good. Oak Forest's PE teacher, Janet Hagler, says, "Anyone who has the opportunity to get to know Sherry Peddy should feel very blessed!"
The administration, staff and faculty of the Vidor Independent School District are committed to ensuring that all VISD students have access to a quality education. It is our goal to enable our students to achieve their potential so that they may fully participate now and in the future in the social, economic and educational opportunities of this area, our State, and our Nation.
