Sherman French is This Week’s Recipient of the Caught in the Act Award
Sherman French has dedicated his life to the service of others and that's why he's this week's Kiss Country Caught in the Act Award Recipient!
When we got his nomination from his granddaughter Kristina Shaw, we just knew we had to meet Mr. French. At 86-years-young, Sherman French has impacted the lives of many through his work as an educator in the Bossier Parish School System and also around the world, thanks to his many mission trips.
Reading about Mr. French brought a tear to our eye, and we think it'll do the same for you. We can only aspire to positively influence as many lives as he has. Here's what Kristina had to say about her 'Papaw':
I would like to nominate an outstanding man that I get to call my Papaw, his name is Sherman French. My Papaw is the hardest working man I know. At the young age of 86, on any given day you will see him walking down our road picking up trash and making sure it always looks so nice. If he sees a neighbor's yard that needs to be mowed, he mows it and never expects anything in return. He worked for the Bossier Parish School system for 50 years, where he was a Principal, teacher, and then taught the G.E.D. program. There is never a time that he sees a former student that they are not so excited to see him and they always have a story about how he made an impact on their life. His good deeds have gone as far as the Philippines, Africa, and Ecuador where he has gone on medical mission trips. He definitely loves helping others in any and every way he can. He is a very special man who I am very proud to call my Papaw.
Sherman French, thank you for being one of the "good guys" and being a big reason why this is the greatest place in America to live!
And because you've been 'Caught in the Act' the gang at Silver Star Smokehouse have a $100 Gift Certificate for you and the family to come have dinner!
Take a listen to the phone call we made to Mr. French to let him know that he was this week's Caught In The Act Award recipient.
