A willow grove elementary school recognized a man they say embodies the spirit of a hero.

Students at Fitzwater Elementary School honored their custodian, Percy Herder Friday during a school assembly.

Herder has been working at the school for 21 years.

He has 28 grandchildren, and 9 great grandchildren, so he knows that a little caring can go a long way.

Herder said "Even sometimes on my bad days when I come in here the kids, I see them sad and I feel as though I gotta perk them up, I forget about my own feelings sometimes to make them happy."

In honor of black history month, students have been studying what makes someone a hero.

They say Herder is everything a hero should be.
