In this installment of StoryCorps Tampa Bay, Cleto “Sundy” Chazares, Principal of the Simmons Career Center in Plant City, tells his friend of 40 years, Ron Wardlow, of his dangerous journey from his tiny Mexican village to the Tampa Bay area and of the act of kindness that changed the direction of his life.

In 2010, after spending 28 years in commercial FM radio, I finally got the opportunity to work at the station I listen to.
