MUSTANG, Okla. – Some people are invaluable when it comes to our children’s education.

One Oklahoman donates a lot of his time to making students smile.

David Garcia is retired from the military and is now a full-time volunteer at Mustang Trails Elementary School.

He is part of a group of men who help the school called “Watchdogs.”

Every morning, Garcia makes sure the doors are locked and helps students get into their classrooms safely.

He also takes time to help students practice reading.

The students are not the only ones who appreciate all of the work Mr. Garcia does.

Principal Alisha Suffield says his enthusiasm is wonderful.

Jim Norton Toyota recognized the Watchdog program at Mustang Trails and presented the school with a check for $600.

Students and teachers agree the Watchdog program is a great addition to the Mustang Trails Elementary School.
