Hero of the Week: Stacy Caldwell

Throughout the week, our ACC Team searches through emails and news articles looking for someone who deserves to be the Hero of the Week… Find out how you can nominate a Hero of the Week at the bottom of the page.

We all know our teachers are everyday heroes and many go above and beyond. Stacy Caldwell is an elementary school music teacher in McKinney, Texas. She noticed that one of her students had a real talent after witnessing him playing drums on a bucket.

After talking with the student, Stacy found out that he was self-taught. He even had a drum set at one time, but it was destroyed in a house fire. Banging on a few buckets was all he had. So, Stacy rallied some friends and got together enough money to buy a drum set.

When the student showed up to her classroom, she revealed the new drum set which caused that young man to tear up… He grabbed some sticks and showed off his skills. Ms. Caldwell will be sending him home with the new set along with a drum pad and some music books.
