As parents, we trust our children's teachers to not only help them grow and learn, but also to keep them safe and protected in our absence.

A very scary situation recently happened in the pool at East High School, and thank God teachers Jeff Compton and Cody Phillips were ready to jump into action when one of their student's was drowning.

I'm guessing that these heroic men would say they were just doing their job or the same thing anyone else who witnessed something like this would do, but it doesn't matter. This world needs more awesome humans like Jeff Compton and Cody Phillips!
