It's National Superhero Day in Thomasville

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A Thomasville elementary school teacher can now add "superhero" to her job description.

Everfan surprised first grade teacher Joy Knope with her very own superhero gear today at Jerger Elementary School.

Two parents of Knope's students nominated her to recognize the difference she has made in her students' lives.

"This day and time, we work so hard and it is nice to have somebody recognize you for the job that you do. It's great. It's a great feeling."

The cape company surprised close to 60 other hometown heroes who were recognized for the good they do in the community.
