We Are Your Neighbors: Timothy Graves, Chariton, IA
I am married to my wife Darcy, and have two children, Chris (age 17) and Cole (age 15). My boys are active in sports in football and wrestling. As most parents know me, I am a very active, involved parent at games. I am a volunteer for the Chariton Volunteer Fire Department, and help the community everyday through this organization.
WHAT TIMOTHY DOES:
Every school day I transport 17 to 25 kids to and from school. I am sometimes the first person the kids talk to in the morning. My impression in the morning can set the attitude of the student for the entire day, and can help them do well in their academics.
WHAT DOES YOUR JOB MEAN TO YOUR FAMILY AND YOUR COMMUNITY:
This job allows my family to have extra money for Christmas and things to purchase for the boys to particpate in sports. It also allows the parents the knowledge of knowing that in our community, the kids are safe when being bussed to and from school.
