In this big world that we live in, it's easy to lose sight of how our actions – big or small – affect others. But the truth is, you never really know the impact you may be making in someone else's life.

Steve Weidner, or ‘Mr. Steve' as he is affectionately called, has been reporting to Alan Shepard Elementary School in Bourbonnais, Illinois for 15 years to fulfill his janitorial duties. He loves his job and takes pride in what he does. But more importantly, he loves the kids that he serves. And because of this, the kids love him right back!

‘He has good relationships with the students. [They] count on Mr. Steve to be there when they need him.' said the school's principal.

Thanks to his kind heart and hard work, Mr. Steve has become a bit of a local celebrity amongst the students. He's so popular, in fact, that every year kids line up to get his autograph. This year, 104 second-graders lined up so that Mr. Steve could sign their yearbooks. And he signed 200 more yearbooks that week!
