Pembroke Pines – Invisible Heroes

Joan Donnelly Ochoa

Invisible Hero defined: According to my self written dictionary, an invisible hero is a person who has a significant impact in the life or lives of others and does so without fanfare.  We all know people like this and here is one person I know of that deserves recognition.

If you drive on Dykes Road in Pembroke Pines you have probably driven by him a thousand times.  You might never know he was there unless he stopped your car at the crosswalk.  His name is Joe Novo and for 8 years he has been the School Crossing Guard at 12th Street and Dykes Road.

If you live in Spring Valley and your children walk to Silver Palms Elementary School in Towngate, your children know him.  He is there on the corner every open school day from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., safely crossing our children.

If you are an early morning walker, like my dog Xena and I, you can always count on a cheerful “good morning” and a smile from Mr. Joe.   As simple as it sounds, it is something I look forward to.  Everyone who walks past Joe stops to talk to him, that is just the way it is.  He has quite the fan club.

A retired business owner from Hialeah and avid supporter of law enforcement, he now resides in Century Village.  Today, Mr. Joe told me due to health issues, he is retiring, at 79,  from being a school guard.  I am sure there will a replacement, but, somehow, that corner just won’t be the same.  Mr. Joe, from my heart, thank you for your service to our community and thank you for always welcoming my day.  Mr. Joe Novo, you are truly one of the invisible heroes and today is your day.Mr. Joe Novo
