Union Point Academy Singing Principal Is Our “Hero”


Chad Caddell, principal of Union Point Academy in Florence, covered the classic Mariah Carey diva tune “Hero.” We caught up with him.

“There’s a message if you look inside your phone. You don’t have to be afraid of what it says,” he warbles, draped in a brown fur hunting hat and coat.

“Icy streets and roads shut the city down, so I’m reaching out to you and gotta say that school is canceled for today.

“Go back to bed and go out and play. Tests and homework not a trace. Parents don’t punch me in the face.”

Here is the video he mentioned in the interview.
