Congratulations to Lay Po, Head Custodian at Lincoln Center, one of three employees from Operations nominated by Executive Director of Capital & Facilities, Eric Allen. Bobby Woodard and Stevie Crownson were also recognized. Bobby was featured in April and Stevie will be featured in a future CHAMPions post. They received their CHAMPions award at the April 21 Board of Education meeting.
Mr. Allen said of the trio, “These three gentlemen display the character that embodies what school districts should be about. They are extremely hardworking. Everyday they exhibit the servitude that is required of everyone in the arena of public education. They do not complete tasks for individual praise but for the betterment of the students and the district. In my time here in CHCCS, I have received emails from principals, teachers and community members highlighting the great things that these men accomplish on a daily basis. CHCCS would not be as great as it is without these gentlemen.”
Mr. Po’s began his career at CHCCS as a custodian at Carrboro Elementary School. He transferred to Lincoln Center as the Head Custodian at Mr. Woodard’s urging.
