High 5: Crossing guard, educators make season special

Dec 9, 2020, 9:19 AM | Updated: Nov 7, 2022, 4:56 pm

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – KSL TV has two High 5 shoutouts today, one for a crossing guard who brings some entertainment to the students heading to school, and one for an elementary principal and his neighbors who make the holiday better for others.

In Provo, Amy Wilcox is bringing lots of smiles to her neighborhood in a tough year.

She helps kids safely cross the street at 3450 North and Canyon Road – and she does it while fueling holiday cheer to everyone around.

KSL TV viewer Rebecca Weaver said Wilcox dresses up for the holidays. She wore a different costume every day through October, dressed up as Uncle Sam on Election Day, and is now dressing up as Santa and other characters from classic Christmas stories.

In West Valley City, Pioneer Elementary School principal Doug Johnson and his neighbors decided to forgo handing out gifts to each other and instead had what they called a “Night of Sharing.”

It’s the fourth year they’ve done this.

They gathered gifts and other items that parents and students at Pioneer Elementary could use during the holiday season. Then, the elementary held a gift drop-off event where families drove through, dropped off gifts, and got a picture with Santa.

Do you know someone doing good in our community? A friend or family member building up neighbors or a coworker giving selflessly? Click here to nominate them for a KSL High 5.
