“Mr. Harris! Mr. Harris! I lost a tooth!” Southside Elementary student Kendra Fizette cried out as Ron Harris entered Leigh Ann Cockrell’s first grade classroom.
It was a Friday morning and Harris had come to volunteer.
“He helps us read,” another student Morgynne Lunsford said.
“He’s nice,” Fizette said. “Mr. Harris is a great person.”
After retiring from the Transportation Cabinet in Frankfort in 1998, Harris began a personal mission to stay busy, while serving the community.
