KENDALL, NY - One school district wanted to make sure a long-serving custodian went out in style Friday. So, the district celebrated his retirement, by throwing him a surprise parade.
For the past 50 years, Bruce Marshall has been a member of Kendall Elementary School, first as a student and then as an employee. Marshall was an employee at the school for 40 years.
Kendall is in Orleans County, near Rochester.
And just as the school day and Marshall's career at the school ended, Marshall was greeted with a surprise parade.
He got a guitar because he's a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen. Hundreds of students were there. As well as some teachers formerly of Kendall Elementary. Marshall got dozens of cards congratulating him. He was also showered with confetti in the parade.
