Angel Aviles, a custodian at Main Street School in Irvington, has been named as a finalist in a nationwide search for Custodian of the Year.
The Custodian of the Year contest is sponsored by Cintas Corp. The 10 remaining finalists will be competing for a $5,000 cash prize as well as $5,000 in Cintas and Rubbermaid products and services for their school.
“Angel is dedicated to making MSS a safe and clean learning environment for all members of the Main Street School community,” Main Street School Principal Joyce Chapnick said. “He greets every single child with a “Good morning!” every single day of the school year. Beyond the significant connections that he makes with children, Angel has been instrumental in making MSS a special place for all of us – from the community garden, to the playground, to our recycling initiative – he does it all, and with a smile.”
The Custodian of the Year contest is open to custodians who are employed in elementary, middle, high school and university settings and have worked in their position for at least two years. The contest has a goal of shining the spotlight on people who work “behind the scenes” and often go unnoticed for their dedication and hard work.
