South Alabama principal to sleep on roof of school

South AL principal to spend night on roof after keeping promise

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WSFA) - Enterprise Early Education Center’s principal will spend Friday night on the roof of the school.

Principal Waller Martin said students did well on their reading assessment this school year. Because of their hard work, he promised he’d hunker down overnight on the roof as a fun celebration.

Martin has a ladder and cots ready.

“They’re really excited. They’re holding me to it. When we found out our scores, I’ve gotten lots of questions each and every day about when I’m going to spend the night on the roof - if i’m going to spend the night on the roof. So they’re really excited about it. There’s been a buzz all around the school ever since we started talking about it,” Martin said.

Martin won’t have to spend the night on the roof alone. His son plans to join him.
