Victoria, Texas man was helped raise by black man next door

 Epoch Times:

A Texas man whose next-door neighbor helped raise him in the absence of a father is sharing his story with the world. Now grown up with kids of his own, he is welcoming this beloved man into a brand-new role as an honorary grandfather.

“My story truly shows that a successful Black American man truly inspired and educated a little white kid next door,” Cody Shugart told The Epoch Times via email. “He did not have to be a part of my life, he chose to and I am thankful to God every day that he chose to help me.”

Cody and his wife, Aubrie Shugart, share four children: Colt Griffin, who was stillborn in 2014, Bob Wayne, 3, William West, 2, and Miles Jefferson, 4 months. Together, the couple runs the oldest dance studio, called the Aubrie Shugart School of Dancing, in Victoria, Texas.

Cody is also the corporate sales manager for a tractor dealership called Scherer Kubota.

“My mother, Yvett Shugart, raised me and my brother, Adam, by herself,” said Cody. A court reporter, Yvett moved with her children to Victoria when Cody was only 2 years old. That’s where they met “Mr. Chip.”

There is much more.
