Helms ES celebrates crossing guard’s 84th birthday

Helms Elementary threw a birthday party for one of its most dedicated employees on Monday – 84-year-old crossing guard Joy Wilson. She was presented with dozens of cards and flowers.

Wilson has served at the school for 40 years, and she has no plans to slow down.

“I will be crossing kids here as long as there are kids,” Wilson told KPRC Local 2.

    I worked at Helms for 15 years and rain or shine, Joy was always there, crossing kids and teachers. She is loved by the students and I hope she continues doing what she loves for many years to come!
