William (Billy) Weldon

Mr. Billy has received honors in his life (2Bronze Stars, Purple Heart, Flagstaff’s Male Citizen/Year, AZ’s Veterans HOF, and MORE!). Still, one of his most cherished honors would undoubtedly be “America’s Favorite Crossing Guard”! He has volunteered as our beloved crossing guard for 13yrs! Under his safety vest, he is often dressed in full military attire as he rushes to multiple veteran funerals across the state. Other days, he is in Marshall blue beaming with pride or all pink in support of one’s battle w/ cancer. He has a hug/high-five for all students as he greets them by name. He is immersed in our culture (runs in school jog-a-thon and purchased flags for each room). He is the reason Marshall is AZ’s first “Purple Heart Elem School”. He volunteers because he genuinely loves the students/staff. Please help us honor his commitment, spirit, & unwavering support.
