Posted: November 21, 2019
The custodial teams of Marshall Early Learning Center, Sedgefield Elementary School, Achievable Dream Middle & High School, and Heritage High School earned top honors in the 2019 Clean School Contest sponsored by Newport News Public Schools' Custodial Services Office.
School custodial teams are invited to participate in the contest each year to earn the "cleanest school" designation. A team of supervisors from Plant Services visited each participating school and randomly evaluated several classrooms, hallways, offices, and public spaces.
The Marshall Early Learning Center team, consisting of Lead Custodian Charmin Wells, Sharon Alston, Wendell Johnson and Donnesha Whitehead earned the top ranking in the Early Childhood Center category.
At the elementary level, Sedgefield Elementary's custodial team of Lead Custodian John Pickett, Angela Goodwin, Katrina Lee and Auturo McClendon finished on top.
The team at Achievable Dream Middle & High School, composed of Lead Custodian Donta Mason, Joyce Ferbee, Angelic Givens and Timothy Radcliffe and Derrick Ward, earned top honors in the middle school category.
At the high school level, Heritage High School's custodial team of Lead Custodian Tammy Davis, Laura Anthony, Demetrius Battle, Darlene George, Shavonne Grey, Ernest Johnson, Timothy Johnson, Shirley Jones, George Neal, Donald Page and Samuel Smith came out on top.
The winning custodial teams were recognized during the November School Board meeting.
NNPS custodians keep their schools safe and clean, and are an important part of the support team that assists students and staff each day.
