Ollice L. Burke, Ⅲ has being a security guard at Sierra for a year now and he is proud to be one. Most students know him as Mr. B and overall seems well liked by the majority of the school. But who is Mr.B? Born and raised in Orlando, Florida, he moved to Colorado Springs 27 years ago back in 1991. After moving back and forth between jobs, he landed himself as a bus driver for Harrison School District. That, though, wasn’t satisfying enough. “I saw the kids in the morning and in the evening and that was it,” he told me about his time as a bus driver. He said he switched to being security guard, “to be closer to kids, to provide them with a role model- a positive role model.” What he had to say about the student body wasn’t a shock, but still hit home. “You guys are good kids. You gotta bring some to get some if you want some.” If you don’t know what that means, he was talking about respect. One of the things Mr. B has definitely earned from the student body is respect. Though on the flip side, he does know his first job is to make Sierra a safe teaching and learning environment for the faculty and the students. We are happy and lucky to have Mr. B as one of our security guards, so if you see him in the hall don’t forget to give him a smile and a fist bump.
