Six year old Cameron Colaprete is allergic to so many things it could kill him.
Despite the risk, Greece Christian School welcomed him.
"There are no words, there are no words for the gratitude literally that my family and I feel for how it changed the trajectory of Cameron's life," said Laurie Colaprete.
It was made possible because Principal Dr. Herb Parker went above and beyond to make sure his school and his staff were ready for Cameron.
Kevin: "What's your favorite thing about Dr. Parker?"
Cameron: "Well he always takes care of me."
The Coleprete's asked us to say thank you to Doctor Parker.
"I'm Kevin Doran from ch.8 and we're here to honor you sir with a Golden Apple Award for being an awesome educator. Thank you so much. What a surprise!
Turns out Herb Parker didn't plan on being a principal.
Kevin: "How long have you been a Principal?" Herb: "This is my 14th year. And how long have you been in education? 14 years. ha-ha."
Herb spent 24 years working as a Financial Analyst for Kodak..
Kevin: Why did you make that switch?
Herb: "Well my children were in Greece Christian school and I was on the board and we were looking for Principals on a fairly regular basis. And I felt there was a turning point in my life and I felt that this was where the Lord was directing me to go to the Greece Christian Schools.
Doctor Herb Parker is a News 8 Golden Apple Award winner.
