A former school janitor has been honored in Kentucky by the state’s attorney general, as well as teachers and students, for his generosity. Alvin Randlett was a 32-year employee of the Covington Independent School District and after he died in 2015, he left over $175,000 to the Office of the Attorney General's Child Victims' Trust Fund.
His donation will help protect kids from abuse, which was an important cause to Randlett. A letter from his estate explains that when he realized the unfortunate circumstances a lot of the students he served were dealing with, he developed a passion for protecting them.
“How amazing is that example of pure selflessness and generosity, putting others before yourself,” says Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear. “Mr. Randlett’s act allows the Child Victims’ Trust Fund to protect more Kentucky children from abuse and make a positive difference in the lives of thousands of Kentuckians for years to come.”
