Johnston County Schools has named Willie Leftdwrige the 2016 Custodian of the Year for his outstanding service and work ethic.
Leftdwrige, the Head Custodian at Facility Services, was recognized among his colleagues at the annual Sparkle Awards Ceremony.
As Custodian of the Year, Leftdwrige was presented with an honorary plaque by Johnston County Schools Director of General Services Allen Vann.
Vann spoke at the ceremony to Leftdwrige’s outstanding work ethic and attitude.
“He has a great spirit about wanting to perform his work to the best of his ability and always asks what he can do to improve upon the stellar results he already achieves,” said Vann.
Vann said Leftdwrige is known for always having a song in his heart, and that he’s always singing while cleaning a restroom, buffing the floors, or washing windows.
“Willie takes pride and ownership in his building. He’s very conscientious about how others perceive the cleanliness of Facility Services and goes the extra mile to have it looking top notch,” said Vann. “It is truly an honor to have Willie on staff as our master craftsman of cleanliness. Keep that song in your heart forever Willie. We love it!”
