Two Irene King Elementary Students Ride in Style in a Romeoville Fire Dept. Truck

Romeoville Fire Department Ride to School

Irene King students Darryl Langston and Robert Lindsay received a unique ride to school on Tue. May 10 when they got a lift from the Romeoville Fire Department.  The fire department donated the ride as an auction item to support the Valley View Educational Enrichment Foundation’s Dinner and Auction.  VVSD Board of Education President Steve Quigley purchased the prize, and passed it along to Irene King Elementary School.

The school gave the ride to Darryl, a third grader who recently began attending King after moving from North Carolina.  Darryl invited Robert, a relative and King fifth grader to share the ride.
