We would like to give a shout out to Crossing Guard Gerald Beckett. He received a lot of attention on Facebook on Thursday.

Bartonville residents posted what great care the nearly 80 year old takes in getting the children safely across the street.

Beckett has been doing his job at Oak Grove East Elementary for nearly 60 years.
