COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (KRDO) – Aaron Crews is a teacher at Rudy Elementary. Because his fifth graders couldn’t have a graduation ceremony, he did the next best thing: he went to Cameo.com, a website where you can get personalized celebrity messages.
“I was just thinking why not reach out to these guys, try it out and see what happens,” said Crews. “These guys were really happy to contact us and wish our fifth graders congratulations on their graduation. It really turned into something special for the kids.”
He surprised his students with the star video. Coach Crews managed to get Dalton Risner from the Broncos and former great Bronco and Hall of Famer Terrell Davis.
“Once I got his answer, I was like oh my god,” Terrell Davis! It’s so awesome, “said Crews.
He was also able to receive impressive, humorous and inspiring messages from Oscar Nunez and Brian Baumgartner, better known as Kevin, from “The Office”.
“My favorite was Kevin, that’s for sure,” said Crews.
Now kids can never give up because the man of men Chuck Norris says so. And, you can’t make an inspirational video for Rudy Elementary students without actor Sean Astin who played the role of a Notre Dame athlete without giving up, “Rudy”.
“It was all for the kids. When it all happened, they must have missed their last two months of school. They couldn’t have a ceremony or anything like that. It really broke my heart “said Crews. “That’s why I started teaching in the first place. What can I do? Help improve the lives of these children.”
