Gould Elementary honors CSX workers

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Youngsters not the only ones recognized at Gould Elementary's annual awards ceremony.

The school's PTA presented CSX employees with the Most Valuable Volunteer Award. It's the highest award PTA gives out. CSX employees have chaperoned more than five field trips this school year.

They've helped out with CRCT testing, participated in several PTA fund-raisers and donated school supplies and uniforms for the students.

"The awards nice but it wouldn't mean nothing if I didn't have it. I like being here, I like being with the children and everyone of these children are like my own and I thank all of the families for letting me be a part of their children's lives," said CSX engineer James Ramirez.

This is the second year in a row CSX has received the award from Gould Elementary.
