Crossing Guard retires

Beloved Crossing Guard Oby Perdue retired as of January 10 from his time serving Barberton Middle School. Stationed on the corner of fourth street and Brady, Oby watched over the four way interesection, brightening the days of all who encountered him. Oby went above and beyond in his position, and even won third place in the national America’s Favorite Crossing Guard contest. He will be missed by students and community members alike. Happy retirement Oby, you’ve earned it!
