CANNELTON - A desire to ensure students make it safely to school and a love of helping the community spurred one man's quest to become a reserve police officer. Since then, he's become an icon of sorts for students, staff and the citizens of Cannelton.
Five days a week, in rain, sleet, snow and sun, Lewis Stubbs Jr. keeps a watchful eye on the students at Cannelton City Schools.
He has been a Cannelton Police Department reserve officer since 2005 and spends his days making sure children cross the street safely. He also walks the halls to make sure the school stays safe.
