Black Excellence Awards - Vincent Coulter

Hello. I’m Vincent Coulter, Mr. Vincent to all my kiddo’s at Prescott Elementary! I have been a hard working, caring and involved Custodian for over 15 years. I feel that my greatest accomplishments of my career are seeing the children I serve grow up and become productive humans! When a young person comes up to me while I’m out in the community and tells me they remember me and our interactions and conversations have made a difference and impact in their lives, it is the best feeling in the world! Some may think being just a Lead Custodian is no big deal, but let me tell you, I'm a teacher, parent, disciplinarian and counselor all rolled up into one when it comes to serving some very deserving children during my career! I love seeing how the School District has grown and changed especially in the areas of diversity and inclusion. It is said that if you have a job you love you will never work a day in your life, that is truly a blessing to me!

Mr. Vincent’s Quote:

“God is Good All The Time!”

Mr. Coulter’s handwritten bio is short but his reach is long. Within his “bio,” he wrote that he has been a “hard working, caring and involved Custodian” for over 15 years. If you add it up, that’s a lot of lives to touch! Mr. Coulter is right when he says,  he has been a “teacher, parent, disciplinarian, and counselor” all rolled up into his custodian’s hat.  Essentially, he is one of the most important people in the building! Not only does he open the doors to a warm building, he has opened his heart to the “humans” that he sees as his responsibility to nurture beyond keeping the furnace stoked! When he is in the community and is recognized by young people who tell him of the impact he has had on their lives, he says “It is the best feeling in the world!”  Recognizing that he has heaven at his feet,  Mr. Coulter says “If you have a job that you love, you will never work a day in your life.” And to echo his favorite quote, “God is Good. All the time!” Thank you,  Mr. Coulter for all the children whose lives you have touched.
